Cheesy Chicken Soup Casserole

Rumiano Family Recipe 2014

Our 3rd Annual Holiday Recipe Contest is nearly over; before it is we'd like to share another Rumiano family recipe. The last recipe we shared (Cheesy Rigatoni) was a classic dish my grandma Claire Rumiano would make for the holidays. This year we're taking a leap into the future generation with a recipe by my parents Pat and John Rumiano. This Cheesy Chicken Soup Casserole is something that was often made between Thanksgiving and Christmas and loved by all. With the simplicity of a casserole and sustenance of a Thanksgiving feast, this Cheesy Chicken Soup Casserole is a recipe designed for those cold winter nights.

Rumiano Family Recipes

In the spirit of the Holiday Recipe Contest, the Rumiano family would like to share a recipe of our own. This recipe is has been passed down for three generations starting with grandmother Claire Rumiano. I (Owen Rumiano) had the chance to recreate this family Christmas time favorite. The recipe has many points of customization and is very flexible with flavors. It always turns out great, especially when you put enough cheese on it!

We're happy to be able to share our family traditions with our supporters and fans. Happy holidays to all, and cheers to a new year! Every Christmas Eve, we would all gather at our grandmother's house for a delicious feast. This dish was always the first out and the first gone. It has been passed down from generation to generation, starting with my grandmother Claire to my aunts and so on. It's a family recipe that only gets better with time. (But, it's never as good as grandma's!)

A recollection of John Rumiano

We're going back in time with this Rumiano history blog post. We're  taking a look at the three brothers that helped start it all, Fred, John and Richard Rumiano. We recently recovered an excerpt written by John Rumiano (standing, back left) and what follows is copied directly from that:

Rumiano Brothers' History

Written by Owen Rumiano, Posted in History

A legacy of quality, service, and perseverance.

Rumiano Brothers' History

The values and innovation of the Rumiano Cheese Company have roots that go back almost a century. The first generation of Rumiano's to emigrate to the United States, brothers Fred, Richard and John held the belief that the hardships of life were conquerable by keeping dedicated values of work ethic in mind. These brothers had a dream to become prosperous and successful, living up to the ideology of the "American Dream." It began with an attempt at gold mining outside of Sacramento, California, in Amador County. The struggling brothers were about 50 years too late, as the California gold-rush had already reaped the benefits of gold mining. They decided their time would be better spent in the San Francisco ship yards during World War I. Richard later married Leontin Ray in San Francisco. Shortly after, the brothers were persuaded to move to Willows, California, about 100 miles north of Sacramento.

The Cheese Must Arrive on Time

The Values of Hard Work

The Cheese Must Arrive on Time

Perhaps the most valuable pearl of wisdom I've learned growing up was, work hard. I've definitely attempted to keep this mindset alive to some degree. Around the age of eleven or twelve, my dad, John Rumiano (VP of Rumiano Cheese), was unloading trucks multiple nights a week. When Tuesday night came around, my twin brother Raymond and I would look forward to "helping" him load and unload trucks -- although our size restricted helping him.
