Conversation Project: Stone Soup

How Recipes Can Preserve History and Nourish Community

April 14, 2018 | 10:30 a.m. | Columbia Ecovillage Condominium Common House

4653 NE Killingsworth St., Portland OR 97218

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. These recipes may end up in a story-based collection compiled throughout this Conversation Project program. Read more.

Snacks will be provided, and the Conversation will be followed by a potluck meal. Please RSVP to Kathleen Walsh at if interested.
