Oregon Humanities Conversation Project
How Recipes Can Preserve History & Nourish Community
May 20, 2017, 4pm

 
Oregon Humanities Conversation Project Speaker Jennifer Roberts will discuss how recipes and the culinary arts can preserve history, connect family, and nourish communities, while guests sample fresh vegetarian sushi rolls by our very own Gallery Manager and lifelong chef, Carolyn Smith. This event will take place in our Gallery & Lobby among the beautiful art of our Arts & Culture of Japan Exhibition.

Sometimes the most overlooked objects can offer the most perceptive insights about ourselves and others. In this Conversation, writer and independent scholar Jennifer Roberts introduces historical and current recipes and asks, “How do recipes work? Why do we collect them? Who do we write them for?” By sharing our own assumptions and memories, we will examine how recipes can help us connect and create communities across time, distance, and culture. Participants are encouraged to bring any treasured recipes they’d like to share with the group while we discuss culinary arts. These recipes may end up in a story-based collection compiled throughout this Conversation Project program.

Presented as part of The Art & Culture of Japan

Tickets: $23 for adults or $18 for students and seniors 62+. Tickets are available here, at Waucoma Bookstore, and in the Gallery, 215 Cascade Ave in downtown Hood River. Note: only 50 tickets available for this event. 10-Ticket Punch Cards for all poTENtial programs available for purchase here.
