J.Peter Meo lives in Michigan with his wife Maria and their five children. A second generation Italian American, he is a graduate of Madonna Catholic University in Livonia Michigan. John has found the time and has kept his promise to "write it all down". He has told his kids these stories and now wants to share them with the world. "Is this true?" is common for people to ask when telling his family stories to friends.
John is the "family historian" and tries to keep the traditions alive. He enjoys cooking the old recipes, sometimes they work, sometimes they don't! Making wine, celebrating life and sharing a good meal with family and friends is what he loves to do. He struggles daily with the simple life and how to work the DVD.
