In celebration of the 4th of July we salute America with a video of Bruce Springsteen singing his hit “Born in the USA.” Our recipe is "America’s Parfait" inspired by the movie “Born on the 4th of July” starring Tom Cruise in his Oscar nominated role of Ron Kovic. He returns home from fighting in the Vietnam War as a quadraplegic. After months of torture in rehabilitation, he finds renewed purposed protesting the war. Ron said to a reporter at a protect rally “People say, if you don’t love America get the hell out, well I love America.” Indeed Ron Kovic’s voice was America voice!
