Jackie's love of art and food began long ago. She remembers cooking in her Italian grandmother's kitchen, chopping tomatoes on a cutting board, and being amazed that they were okay with giving her such a sharp knife to handle at such a young age. The smell of spaghetti sauce wafted through the house and lasted for days. After dinner, everyone would clean up together until each dish was dried and put away.
