The goal of the activity is to share memories and
stories through foods. There are many shared
foods/recipes among the people/cultures of former
Yugoslavia. This even t(s) would be a place to share
the foods and talk about the similarities and
differences of those foods and traditions that go
along with them.
Participants will be asked to bring a dish along with
the recipe. I would propose that this be a seasonal
event where attendees would be asked to bring a dish
significant for that season. The dish could be from an
original recipe from back home, one that may have been
adapted to what is available here, or be a dish
discovered in the US that reminds them of home.
At the event(s) all participants would share the food
and the stories that go along with the dishes. The
stories would be recorded and transcribed.
Coordinator: Deanne D'Aloia who loves to cook and eat
