Recipes are always more than “how to” instructions for preparing dishes and drinks. Recipes are stories. They reveal how and why we remember certain ingredients, techniques, and ways of serving. Recipes archive the flavors and textures of our lived experiences, of the places we have lived, of histories we share with family, friends and strangers.
