Heirloom Meals: Savoring Yesterday's Traditions Today

What is
Heirloom Meals?

Heirlooms are treasures passed down through the generations.

Meals are moments when family and friends gather around food.

Heirloom Meals celebrates treasured family recipes, stories and tips!

We walk down food memory lane and explore what food(s) and recipe(s) remind you of home.

We explore how food memories often inform who you are and how you eat and cook today.

I find:

 - the bond of love that food creates.

 - how food connects us to our past and is the bridge to our future. 

 - how the past is often prologue.

 - how the wisdom of our ancestors' kitchens are worth preserving, exploring, and reviving.

 - how to honor any and all food memories, from great to bad. They are all valued as they are your memories. I honor them, explore them, and celebrate them.

I am a storyteller. Your storyteller.  I help tell your story through the lens of your food memories.

So come on in. Make yourself at home. I've got a few stories to share. And recipes - old, newly concocted and curated. And, then there's my story as a daughter, wife, stepmom, and person. I hope you'll want to add yours to the mix!! 

And remember, our memories are really our heirlooms, forever. Let me help you keep them alive.

Heirloom Meals Recipe Project Launch

What a summer! I promise to write a blog post and share the gamut of experiences that rolled through my life. Suffice it to say, I have been sad, afraid, elated, and now proud. Proud to announce the official launch of the Heirloom Meals Recipe Project. The pilot program exceeded my wildest imagination. We wrote, we shared, we cried, we laughed, we bonded, we created. Our final products are getting their finishing edits and then everyone will have their very own heirloom family cookbook. The program was satisfying on so many levels!!  

Here is the link to everything you need to know. (I am working on creating a new section for workshops but for now the blog post will have to do!!) I hope to see you in the September 10th class or the others I have scheduled.

Also - check out my recent interview with Dale Gillis as a result of working with the National Onion Association!
