I've got to admit: my mother's family is from a spot on the Potomac down near where the rivers empties into the Chesapeake. I hate plain fish. Scallops, clams, shrimp? OK. Only time I ate a lobster I got sick. But that side of my family were "bay men" for a couple of generations. Other side is from The Valley...beef! I take after that side. Mitlen would fit right in, assuming he likes ham and turkey and such.
