Preserving Family Recipes: A Conversation with Author Valerie Frey Stone

book cover

Tuesday, November 17, 7:00 p.m.

Family recipes can be heartwarmingly nostalgic and a wonderful way to learn more about our heritage, but they can also be problematic. Your recipes may be sketchy or even unwritten. Is there family lore that should be written down or photographs that could be added to make them more appealing to future generations? And how can you make sure family recipes, stories, photos, and artifacts last as long as possible? The book Preserving Family Recipes: How to Save and Celebrate Your Food Traditions (UGA Press) celebrates family foodways and addresses these issues. The book will be available for purchase through the Library Store. In Multipurpose Room A.
