For Thanksgiving  week -- Florida Matters takes a look at food, family and cooking traditions.

Reporter Bobbie O’Brien has an Irish heritage among other ancestors.

Her husband is 100 percent French Canadian. And marrying into his clan meant that she learned how to make the traditional French Canadian meat pie, tourtiere, from a family recipe that had been passed down for generations.

She makes the traditional pie for our listeners and shares a few of their family stories and recipe secrets along the way.

Bobbie O’Brien has been a Reporter/Producer at WUSF since 1991. She reports on general news topics in Florida and the Tampa Bay region.
