In my family cooking is a really important skill to know. In Puerto Rico almost every household has a pilon. This was bought in my family's homeland, Puerto Rico. We use pilons for a lot of our cooking. For the mothers, they use the pilon to teach the daughters to cook. In our family it’s usually the women cooking the food but, from time to time the men would cook; Along with the traditional recipes that are also passed down. The pilon shows how my family is passionate and skilled in cooking.
