CHARLA: Recetas de Casa, a healing recipe exchange from and about home

In this multi-generational event, participants will exchange recipes and stories about the people, places, and food that form their connections to home. Participants will gather online to share the dishes they are creating to bring comfort, nourishment, and healing during these challenging and uncertain times. Recipes and excerpts of stories will be compiled into a digital cookbook and shared with all participants.

Recetas de Casa is an online component of Comida Casera, a multigenerational project using food and storytelling to cultivate community transcending borders and divides. The project centers on traditions relocated from one table, culture, and generation to another.
