Food Memories and Memoir

Thursday, April 6 - 6:00 PM


Who doesn’t have a food memory? The Thanksgiving turkey that went awry…a spicy meal that recalls the end of a relationship…the cheesy carb comfort go-to that shakes the blues. The food memoir—or essay—can be a juicy kitchen drama or a nostalgic stir of memory. In this workshop, we’ll have fun with food, using writing exercises and prompts to get that memorable scene on the page. We’ll read excerpts from various writers and from chefs whose food stories seduce, tantalize and comfort. We’ll take a recipe—whether it’s from a family cookbook or in your head—and start to make a story, scene or essay from it. Join this mac ‘n cheese lover for some tips to get you started!
