What a fun way to spend your lunch break!
From Uncle’s barbecue sauce to Grandma’s cobbler, family recipes fill us with nostalgia and draw us closer to family—if they have been saved and if they actually work right, that is. So what can you do if a beloved recipe is sketchy, horribly outdated, impossible to read, or unwritten? How can you make sure those old handwritten recipes as well as heirloom photos and kitchen artifacts last for future generations? And did you ever sto...p to look at your recipes with a historian's eye, exploring what that family recipe may be telling you between the lines? Valerie J. Frey, author of Preserving Family Recipes: How to Save and Celebrate Your Food Traditions (UGA Press), will explore various aspects of your family's heirloom recipes.
Participants will learn:
How to care for their family recipe books and sheets, as well as other kitchen artifacts
Techniques for translating sketchy, illegible, or unwritten food traditions into usable information
How to interpret family recipes from a historical perspective
A toolkit for working effectively with these family heirlooms
