What a great project. My husband's father is a presby minister and I plan to share your post with him--he's always looking for new ideas.

Very cool project ... I would be interested to hear more. I have a friend who is teaching kids in MA about food, and she says it's astonishing how many of them don't have a food memory -- having grown up on microwaves and fast food. Brava to anyone who is helping to nurture that memory.

By the way, I found a farmer near you who is doing organic grain production. If I don't email you about it, bug me and I will look it up.


What a great way to teach kids about food, farming, family, and history!


Erin, how cool about your dad. Do pass the idea on--actually, I love what the Presbyterians are doing around hunger issues--way to go on that Taco Bell lawsuit!!!

Jen, I'll let you know how it goes. We're just beginning the food and memory project now. I also saw something in Saveur's 100 this month about family cookbooks that a publishing company can put together. But to me, the idea of having the kids get the oral histories of the foods they like and learning how to transcribe the recipe (many of these dishes are just done from memory) and then learn how to cook it has great potential. If I had know how popular these cooking classes would be with kids of all ages I would have done it years ago. I can't wait to get them out to the farms!
