Bowling Green's Jackie Metz is the self-proclaimed "last of a dying breed" - 100 percent Romanian, yet all-American.
That proud Romanian heritage is reflected in many ways, not least her approach to cooking.
"I grew up in Northeast Ohio to first-generation American parents. All four of my grandparents grew up in Romania.  My maternal grandparents came from the village of Garbova and my paternal grandparents were from Fagaras not too far away. They all settled in the Warren-Youngstown area in the early 1920s." Her grandparents started the Romanian Orthodox church there, as a matter of fact.
Her maternal grandfather died when Metz's mother was a little girl, so Metz never knew him. However, "I grew up with my grandmother, Buni, (Romanian for grandmother) in the house with my parents and my sister."
