THE FAMILY SUPPER table is a good place to learn your history. While sitting at the table you not only enjoy the food, you can also observe the rituals of its preparation. Moreover, little things like how you cook your rice and how you shop for groceries can remind you of people and events in your past.That is what Vertamae Grosvenor believes. She considers herself a culinary anthropologist. She has written two books, "Vibration Cooking or the Travel Notes of a Geechee Girl" (Ballantine, 1992, $8)
