This Cook of the Week is a cook. Lee Wade, of rural Norwalk, fixes food for the Erie County Senior Center Meals on Wheels program, as well as the meals served in-house.
Wade, who grew up in North Fairfield, has had many opportunities to find recipes for dishes. He grew up watching his two grandmothers cook and, for a period, lived in an area of Connecticut where Portuguese dishes were popular. They included kale and potato soup and Linguica, a Portuguese sausage.
