The Council for Older Grown ups in Niagara County launched a exclusive challenge to document the area’s cultural heritage by way of foods. The COA invited all Niagara County people to submit conventional spouse and children recipes to maintain and commemorate their cultural historical past and honor their liked ones by means of the generation of a group cookbook. “A Flavor of Record: Heritage Recipes from Niagara County” will be available for sale later this 12 months for a nominal fee.
“Food has a way of bringing us collectively like nothing else. Treasured household recipes can join us and provide us together to explain to the tale of wherever we appear from,” COA coordinator Monica Barner stated. “My mother died more than 30 decades ago and I have constantly regretted hardly ever crafting down her orange cookie recipe. I would give nearly anything to style these cookies once again and be transported back to our kitchen.”
COA reported, “Food is an essential element of lifestyle and id for so lots of Western New Yorkers. Immigrants from all over the environment deliver the food of their nations around the world with them where ever they go, and using those people common recipes is a way of preserving cultural heritage and passing on household traditions to long term generations.”
All Niagara County people are welcome to submit their spouse and children recipes through email to [email protected]. Incorporate your contact information and facts, a limited tale about the recipe, and attach any photos that may possibly be appropriate. Images of handwritten recipes, family members gatherings, the creator of this recipe and the completed food merchandise are particularly encouraged for inclusion in the e-book. Remaining cookbook will include things like as lots of recipes as doable, supplied place limits. Recipes will be approved by way of March 1. If guidance is required for distributing recipes or photos, simply call the COA at 716-285-8224, ext. 215.
