“CREATING FOOD TRADITIONS” @ CHESTER LIBRARY

Tuesday, September 26 @ 7 PM – 8 PM

From holiday meals to everyday touches, we all have food traditions that characterize the eating experiences of our families. In this class, participants will learn how to identify and preserve meaningful traditions for themselves and their children. We will learn to mine the past for cultural recipes, beautifully document our unique food histories, and engage our families and friends in the eating experience. We also will explore ways to create new traditions rooted in recent experiences and travels. Register at www.chesterlib.org or call 879-7612.
