Food is a universal idea. Everyone needs to eat to survive. Every culture, family, person has a different view on the subject. From how something is prepared to simply how something tastes, food is an ever changing necessity to our everyday lives. I’m intrigued with how people learn to cook and how recipes are passed down from generation to generation. My generation, and all subsequent ones after, have access to a plethora of information through the internet. If I want to learn how to make Chicken Parmesan, I just go online and search “Chicken Parmesan.” Over a million results are available to me. Unlike me, prior generations learned how to cook by watching their parents. Mothers were keepers of the home. Homemade meals were the norm, not the exception. When people cook together, conversations happen. Stories get passed along, bonds are made. Food has a history that goes with it. There are stories to be told, memories that are made. My goal is to preserve these stories within the recipes themselves.
