ALCTS webinar: Preserving Family Recipes

When: 
Tuesday, April 24, 2018
1:00 pm to 2:00 pm, US/Central

ALCTS webinar: Preserving Family Recipes

 

Date: Tuesday, April 24, 2018

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11 am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1 pm Central, and 2 pm Eastern time.

 

This webinar is sponsored by the Preservation Outreach Committee for Preservation Week.

 

Description: From Uncle’s barbecue sauce to Grandma’s cobbler, family recipes fill us with nostalgia and draw us closer to family—if they have been saved and if they actually work right, that is. So what can you do if a beloved recipe is sketchy, horribly outdated, impossible to read, or unwritten? How can you make sure those old handwritten recipes as well as heirloom photos and kitchen artifacts last for future generations? And did you ever stop to look at your recipes with a historian's eye, exploring what that family recipe may be telling you between the lines? Valerie J. Frey, author of Preserving Family Recipes: How to Save and Celebrate Your Food Traditions (UGA Press), will explore various aspects of your family's heirloom recipes.

 

Learning outcomes:

Participants will learn:

  • How to care for their family recipe books and sheets, as well as other kitchen artifacts

  • Techniques for translating sketchy, illegible, or unwritten food traditions into usable information

  • How to interpret family recipes from a historical perspective

  • A toolkit for working effectively with these family heirlooms

 

Who should attend?  This Preservation Week webinar is intended to provide a programming opportunity for public libraries to share with their patrons.

 

Presenter:
