A Note From Shaheen Hughes
When I’m in my kitchen cooking from my late great grandmother or grandmother’s old recipe books, I am not alone. I feel them in the kitchen with me, encouraging me, whispering stories and peering into the pot I stir.
I make my grandmother’s chicken curry for my children with the same ingredients and from the same recipe used for around 400 years. All of the beautiful family recipes on this feed have this in common: real ingredients, fresh seasonal produce, traditional techniques; they are made from scratch, and with much love.
No matter our culture or food tradition, love for the food of our childhood unites us. Food nourishes in so many ways, it speaks to our deepest emotions, makes us recall our memories with sharp clarity – the smell of apples and cinnamon, the taste of pie, the sight of our grandmother kneading dough with wrinkled hands.
These recipes celebrate the amazing power of food and the ritual of cooking and eating to comfort us, to evoke love, nostalgia, to bridge time and distance, to tell the story of our past and to keep it alive for our future.
