This project is a memoir cookbook based on my grandmother who was known for her home cooking. Her recipes and food were famous amongst those close to her and it is what she was well known for.
She meticulously wrote down all her recipes by hand and distributed them amongst her 3 children. This helped her legacy live on. All my life I was told that I am a lot like her and look a lot like her. I was also told I got my creative side from her.
I found this quite amusing as I have no memory of her because she passed away when I was quite young. Growing up, during family gatherings, my parents, uncles, and aunts would often talk about the recipes she left behind and that they would love to put them all together in the form of a blog or book. This never ended up happening, so I decided to take this task upon myself and make it my University FMP.
I felt this was a great way of honouring her and keeping her legacy alive. It was also a very interesting way for me to learn more about my grandmother through other people’s memories and stories of her and her cooking.
