When Food is a Part of the Family

by Stephanie on December 15, 2015


“For many Latin cultures, food is memory, connection, and love.” Caron Garcia Martinez explains how cooking is a part of her family history and is a great metaphor for raising her boys — so valuable are the recipes of life and how sacred food is to connect us all.

Watch Caron reading her piece, “You Can Find Us In The Kitchen” at LTYM: DC 2015 below or on the Listen To Your Mother YouTube Channel.

First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which
I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
I have had a difficult time clearing my
thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it just
seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
