Food is a powerful event for us. It's ever-present and quite mundane, and yet it possesses the capacity to astonish and delight us beyond anything else (well, almost anything!) Being fed or being hungry, procuring food, storing/hording/giving away food, growing, tasting, discovering, cooking, eating, sharing. Food as a source and expression of identity, class, culture. Food as a way to connect with others. How has food shaped, both literally and figuratively, who you are?
I wish I could bring you all to the deep stillness of the mountains to consider these questions and cook up some deliciousness together. But even without the support of a workshop, you can still wander down memory lane and take a look. You may be surprised about what you discover, what you have forgotten, what is significant and what is no longer such a big deal.
Who are you? What is your food story?
