Clarke Oconee Genealogical Society meeting and program- Athens Clarke County Library Heritage Room- Multipurpose Room C – 2025 Baxter Street, Athens, 2 pm–
“Your Family’s Legacy in Recipes” is the topic. Family recipes are instructions for recreating the nostalgic tastes of yesteryear, but there is often more to them than what you see at first glance. If you’ve ever wanted to reproduce a beloved family favorite only to find the recipe is sketchy, outdated or simply unwritten, you know that there may be a lot of tricks and tips involved with turning out a satisfying dish. But did you ever stop to look at your recipes with a genealogist’s eye? Valerie J. Frey, author of Preserving Family Recipes: How to Save and Celebrate Your Food Traditions (UGA Press), will explore various aspects of your family’s heirloom recipes.
