Peter was born in Europe to parents that were born and raised in Poland and emigrated west soon after World War II. Peter’s mother, Alina Zeranska, wrote The Art of Polish Cooking in 1968, which served as the foundation of the family's love for Polish food.
Laura married into the family in 1973 and learned to cook Polish dishes from her mother-in-law. As Peter’s parents grew older, Laura took over the preparation of hundreds of Sunday family dinners and special holiday celebrations such as Christmas Eve and Easter. The recipes she prepares today are essentially the same as those prepared in Poland by Peter’s grandparents, great-grandparents, and great-great-grandparents.
