Tabletop Stories: Food and Your Family History – by Karen Inkster Vance

(Target audience: Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced)

“Whatever your family background, chances are you can find dozens of stories around food: struggling to find it during times of hardship; hunting, fishing and gardening; canning and preserving; cooking and baking with passed down recipes; and eating together at family gatherings.  Since so much family history is created around food, these stories and recipes are worth preserving.  Get inspired by some of my family food memories and learn how you can write and share your own family’s tabletop stories through short vignettes, essays or published books.”
