How many of you are spending MUCH more time in the kitchen these days?
How many items are you finding in your cupboards or pantry that are expired? What was the “oldest” one you found?
Have you finally had the time to figure out (Google) what that kitchen gadget does that you inherited from your great uncle?
Whether they are from today or 75+ years ago, bring your past and present photos or objects that inspire your baking, cooking, growing, kitchen or food appreciation experience.
Was an ancestor or is a family member a cook/ chef/baker/foodie/farmer?
Did you inherit a tool of their trade or have a photo of their creation(s) or recipe/cookbook that they wrote?
Or does a present-day object remind you of them or inspire you as a food enthusiast or kitchen witch?
What or who inspired you/them to create at the start of your/their career? Or now? Is there a dish you make when you’re feeling down? A favorite pie plate, rolling pin, cast iron skillet or apron that comforts you or brings a smile to your face?
Do you grow your own food? Bring a piece of your personal food history & share its story.
Bring photos, letters, kitchen gadgets, utensils, crockery, cutlery, aprons, cookbooks, gardening tools or any other object that represents or connects you to all things food!
Show & Tale is like Antiques Roadshow meets The Moth, or your favorite Pinterest board come to life!
Everyone is welcome to share with a 3-minute time limit. No judges, no prizes, no competition. And no need to practice! Just show your object and share its tale.
Just want to come and listen? Awesome. Observers always welcome.
