"A lot of the recipes that we use at [Hearth] to this day have roots from Mom back in the day," Canora said. "You know, over time I always kind of modernize them a bit, you know we don't serve as rustic food as I grew up eating. At the wine bar we do though, and that's really cool.
"But yeah, she's been a huge role and she's hugely proud, and you know, listen, is there a part of her that wishes that I was a doctor or a lawyer, you know, making half-a-million dollars a year, and on my own terms and not all the sacrifice? And she sees me like pulling my hair out and she worries, like, 'You're going to give yourself a heart attack.' So she worries, and I'm sure there's a part of her that wishes I had a, quote, 'easier life.'
"But at the end of the day, I think she sees me enjoying what I do. And like [I tell] my daughter: As long as you're happy doing it, then that's a win."
