Long time Irondequoit resident Jean Petranto has published two cookbooks of her popular Italian home cooking recipes.

Petranto, 94, discussed her passion for cooking on Wednesday on News 8 at Noon.

"I love to cook," she said. "My husband loved to eat!"

She said she began cooking at the age of seven and learned three important ingredients from her father - garlic, pure virgin oil and a stainless steel kettle.

Petranto decided to publish her first cookbook, "Through Tears and Fears I Conquered" at the age of 89 because people kept calling her for recipes. She later published a seconc cookbook, "Healthful Simple & Wholesome," both of which are available on Amazon.com .

The long time Irondequoit resident exercises regularly, teaches a cooking class, and still spends plenty of time in the kitchen.

Good Lord lets hope she never used the N word!
