The food we share unites us across borders – and yet it is also unique to you and your personal experience. Your food (and the stories behind it) connects you to your family in a very special way.
NY Times Bestselling author AJ Jacobs and the entire Global Family Reunion team want to hear your food story in anticipation of the world’s biggest, baddest family reunion to be hosted in NYC. The reunion – which attempts to prove we’re all cousins – is being filmed by Morgan Spurlock, of Supersize Me fame. MKB’s own Sasha Martin (that’s me!) will help select several stories to include in the Global Family Reunion cookbook that will be seen by thousands of people around the world. For details and to submit your story, simply fill out the form.
On a personal note – I’m so honored to bring this opportunity to the MKB community. It’s the perfect group to contribute stories to a global event. After all…
We celebrate diversity in heritage.
Even as Americans, my husband and I have very different backgrounds: my grandparents were from Hungary and Italy – my husband’s from the British Isles. Our cherished family recipes are very different – I eat tons of chicken paprikas, stuffed cabbage leaves, pasta, and cannolis. He’s meat and potatoes all the way! I’m sure you can relate – perhaps your heritage spans entire continents. Sharing these sorts of food stories is perfect.
We represent diversity within community.
Moving abroad creates a abundance of new food experiences. For those living in a new country even grocery stores become schoolrooms. When I lived in France, the cheese aisle of the grocery store was an endless fascination. But equally enjoyable was the simple act of eating a baguette, still-warm from the boulangerie. If you’ve lived abroad (or are living abroad) what food stories hold a special place in your heart?
