Lecture: Preserving Family Recipes: Retrieving Historic Food Ways

When: Mon., Feb. 8, 5 p.m. 2016

Senior Citizens, Inc. presents this lecture by Valerie Frey. In her talk, Ms. Frey not only offers practical advice such as storing recipes outside the kitchen and away from boiling water and open flames; she also delves deeply into family and regional food ways and the temperamental paths by which recipes move generationally. In a fascinating exploration of “food anthropology,” Frey reveals alchemical methods for resurrecting dishes whose recipes and creators are long gone.
