Why You Should Definitely Learn Your Grandma's Recipes
Don't overlook the value of learning family recipes, especially ones that have been passed down over many generations.
In this episode of Thrillist's Best Podcast, I learn the enduring value and myriad benefits of learning family recipes -- especially those passed down over generations -- by speaking with:
- Superstar chef Aarón Sánchez on learning to cook from his mother and grandmother, and the ingredients they prefer in their kitchens
- Rosella Rago, on her show Cooking with Nonna, and why nonnas are the unsung heroes of the cooking world
- Erin Byers Murray and Cindy Wall, two of the women behind Dirty Pages, showcasing the stories and legacies behind so many family recipes
- Kunal Patel, Ria Bhowmick, Kush Parmar on their project Curryageous, dedicated to examining and preserving family recipes and their stories
In the end, I'm so inspired I actually attempt one of my own Grandma's recipes (one of her own "dirty pages")... and fail miserably. But at least I learned something.
