Linda Capeloto Sendowski began baking as a child, helping her mom and Nona create special meals for family celebrations and holidays. Linda descends from a long line of Sephardic Jewish home cooks from the Island of Rhodos in Greece and the coast of Turkey, including Istanbul, Chanakli, and Tekirdag. Both sides of Linda's family came to the United States in the early 1900's. Over the years, her recipes have been published in small newspapers, community newsletters, and larger publications such as the Washington Post and The New York Times. Linda continues to develop recipes, teach classes for charity fundraisers, and is working on new cookbooks of a variety of recipes, inlcuding Holiday meals.
