Auntie Kay: “You know what foods are Leigh, they are memories. It’s not just food that you eat.”

Leigh Olson: That is my Auntie Kay and it’s from a recording that I made when she and my dad visited a couple of summers ago. I felt compelled to document the conversations that we were having, because the stories were so rich and so often about things that I had never heard from either one of them before. One thing that struck me most when they were recalling their memories is that food was the catalyst to the another memory and yet another story. It reminded Auntie Kay of the being lost in the cranberry bogs of Northern Minnesota. It reminded my dad of a deep connection to the community they lived in. It reminded them both of holidays and vacations spent with aunts and uncles and cousins. And the loss of family members

When I shared some of the recipes and discussions with friends they would say things like “I remember something like that that my grandmother used to make for… and another story came to life proving my aunt’s proclamation that food and memories have a very special bond.

And that is exactly what this podcast is about. It’s about the stories that are as much a part of the recipes as the ingredients and the methods by which they’re made

I hope that you’ll join me on The Heritage Cookbook Project Podcast as we connect with cooks across the country to talk about food memories, family recipes and learn just a little bit more about each other.

Connecting with Cooks Across the Country

Now, you can listen to stories of food memories and family recipes on The Heritage Cookbook Project Podcast. As I share stories from cooks across the country, who might even be your neighbors, I hope that you are reminded of your own food memories and family recipes.  And how much food is a part of our heritages, cultures, and futures.

Enjoy!
