Welcome to A Memorable Feast, a place where the memories of dishes of childhood past, meals of significant value, and items we can’t seem to live without come to live.
Food and memory are inextricably linked. A single taste or smell can transport us to days long forgotten, while a particular meal or recipe can forge bonds that transcend generations. This blog will explore the relationship between food and remembrance, between cooking and tradition, and capture how what we eat makes us who we are.
Since we have to eat every day to survive, it’s not surprising that food is one of the most underrated and often overlooked daily events. Most days, breakfast, lunch, and dinner just blur together into a haze of quick meals and forgotten foods. There are those moments, however, when we are transported back in time by a certain smell, taste, or texture, and that is when food takes on a different meaning than pure nutritional value.
Please submit your stories, and share with us those moments when food becomes memorable.
