Elena Allen talks about pig roasting through the years with family and friends, her Cuban heritage, and her family's rich history as they emigrated from Cuba to the U.S. after Fidel Castro's rise to power in the late 50's-early 60's. The stories her family can tell are many. In her background are physicians, chefs, governors, diplomats, military veterans, college professors...it boggles the mind to think so much talent, skill, intelligence, class, kindness, humility, loyalty, and love can be contained in one big family, but that seems to be the case. I can't even provide a good introduction to this episode, because the glimpses into this family history that Elena gives us are so fascinating and intriguing, that it's just best to let her tell it. I have nothing more to add. I can't wait for you all to meet Elena Allen and, through her, this beautiful family.
