Dear Amy: I learned how to cook from my mother, grandmother and aunts, who all lived under the same roof.

In a Latin family like mine, it was a given that women learned to cook. I loved being among these wise ladies.

Fast-forward to now. I am married to a wonderful man. Although he’s not Latin, he has fully embraced my family and culture.

My husband comes from a small family, and his mother likes having everyone over for dinner.

The problem is that this woman cannot cook and she has no interest in learning.

There are family members (including my husband) who get physically sick after eating one of her meals!

I’ve tried bringing over a side dish, but she takes offense. A cookbook that was given to her is collecting dust. She declines help in the kitchen.
