There have been other stories, both online and in person, of recipes being passed down, of timeless cookware, of time spent together. This is what it’s really about. As things get passed down, culture continues
There are people making a living now by digging up the old ingredients, the old methods, the old equipment of making traditional food. Somewhere something didn’t get passed down, something was lost. Now it has to be relocated. But the encouraging stories this week are what prevents that from happening. We love, then we watch, then we learn, then we do.
It starts on January 1 with a traditional meal. But that process touches every area of our lives. Learn the ways of your elders. And don’t forget to pass it down.
