Taste of Heritage

The food my mama made, and the stories she told, flavor the recipes I make today.  So do the flavors of dishes made by friends from China, Goa (India), France and the American Southwest.  

A lot of factors contribute to my curiosity about why food traditions matter to people around the world: where I grew up, the fact that my parents don’t like wild game but my sister and I started hunting in college, and all the quirks of locally produced food, including ecological and sustainability-related considerations.  Since I’ve spent much of the past two years in a different country with a different language and lots of multi-cultural immigrants, I’ve had even more opportunities to pursue my curiosity.

Taste of Heritage investigates how special recipes and cooking traditions are a key part of family and cultural heritage.  If you have a recipe, meal or food-related tradition that you would like to share, please contact me. Multi-cultural themes, immigrant experiences, and “pûre laine” memories are welcome.
