Heirloom Meals: Savoring Yesterday's Traditions Today

Caroline Grant

Caroline Grant was born in Japan and moved back to Bronxville, NY when she was five. Her Mom's cooking was influenced by their time in Japan, but her keen memories were about their vegetable garden and fresh food.  Caroline went on in life to become a writer, editor, teacher, wife and mom.  When she met co-editor, Lisa Catherine Harper, their conversations about feeding their children fueled the creation of both a blog, Learning to Eat, and their book.

In  The Cassoulet Saved Our Marriage, Caroline writes in her essay, Lunch Lady, "Some people say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and others claim family dinner will keep our teenagers off the streets, but lunch is my meal."  And lunch has been the meal that Caroline has used her entire life to feed herself - physically, socially and mentally.

Listen in to discover, perhaps, what food means in your family.
