Many people like to eat only what they have eaten before, but belief in traditional nourishment is often based on an impeccable lack of logic. A man we know blamed his mother for his poor results in the end of term examination. He was a sickly child and his anxious, Sicilian Mom believed her dearly beloved son would benefit from an old folk remedy. Every morning she prepared for him a tumbler of Marsala wine into which she had beaten a raw egg. The poor lad had gone to school, literally falling down drunk.
