Weekend reading: Savor: Stories of Community, Culture & Food
Kate Harrington and Mary McIntyre. Savor: Stories of Community, Culture & Food. Edited by Adrienne Cachelin. Foreword by Gary Paul Nabhan. Available from www.savorbook.com, 2015.
Proceeds from sales of this book go to support the Glendale-Mt. View Community Learning Center where the authors work. I liked the community aspects of this book so much that I did a blurb for it.
I can’t think of a better way to build community–to bring people of diverse cultures and histories together in common cause–than to ask them to describe what they most love to eat. The Glendale Community Project has done just that and to gorgeous effect. This book should inspire anyone to dig out treasured family recipes and share them with friends, new and old.
