Food for Hard TimesPosted: October 23, 2008
At Casserole Crazy, Emily Farris directs us to a short video series on “Depression Cooking” by a 91-year old woman named Clara.
This is exactly the kind of kitchen knowledge I was talking about in my Pollan post yesterday. It’s simple cooking rooted in memory, history, and family. And the recipe is vegetarian! Also, I would like to point out the bonus-point awesomeness that is Clara’s removal of the (presumably branded) label from her can of peas, replacing it with her own black marker label.
Clara’s video series can be found here.
