The community cookbook was conceptualized as a way to unite folks, food, and storytelling. By collecting recipes and archiving them as such I hope to bring people a little closer together (while apart).
This community cookbook is meant to bring together cherished recipes, the memories, traditions and family legacies we carry with them, and make folks feel a little more connected to one another.
Inspired by the history of community cookbooks as a tool for community reciprocity and skill-sharing, I know food to be a great unifier. I grew up with an immense love for food, discovering new tastes and textures, and the creative possibility of food—
without an extensive knowledge of the practice of cooking itself nor a way around the kitchen. This is my way of learning and exploring food together with my community and creating a community-generated resource that hopefully will inspire us all to learn from each other and try out some new things.
