Rosalie Gaziano's two greatest passions include mothering and cooking, both
of which she proves to be extremely successful in. She dedicated her life to
raising five sons and eight grandchildren. In 2002 she was named the National
Mother of the Year by American Mothers, Inc. She says, "It is a high
calling for single, working and stay-at-home mothers. I'm here to teach women
to treasure the job and the world to respect it." Gaziano is also an expert
chef. When questioned about her passion for cooking, she reports, "There is
no greater gift than life, and food sustains life."
Gaziano attended West Virginia University and is currently a resident of
Charleston, West Virginia. She served as president of the academic honorary Phi
Beta Kappa and organized the annual Symphony Sunday fund-raiser and Symphony
Summerfest events for the West Virginia Symphony. She is also a member of the
symphony board and the advisory board of the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences
at West Virginia University.
Gaziano frequently writes about her two passions, food and mothering. In It's
Your Turn, Chikadees, which is part travelogue and part memoir, Gaziano
describes her family's adventures and learning experiences during an exciting
year of European travel. Gaziano also gathered original Old World family recipes
from the villages of Calabria in southern Italy and Aragona in Sicily to produce
Seasons and Celebrations (pb F), a cookbook for all seasons
(available from Pelican).
