How would you feel if your traditional family recipes were lost forever?
Most likely awful! Most people don’t realize that cooking is one of the first activities affected for individuals with Alzheimer’s who were the primary cooks in the family and the effects are felt by their loved ones who enjoyed their meals for many years. Family recipes are the heart of tradition, and if they are lost family heritage is lost too. In spring of 2006, when Barbara Magro heard the diagnosis of her mother’s disease and witnessed her mother’s decline, she set out to preserve her family recipes that were at the heart of her upbringing. Recipes to Remember - My Epicurean Journey to Preserve my Mother’s Italian Cooking from Memory Loss is the result. This heartwarming book showcases the soul-satisfying food of an Italian-American family through generational recipes and stories around them that were saved before they were lost to the jaws of Alzheimer’s disease. As seen in the Wall Street Journal, Daytime TV and WPLG 10 Miami. http://www.recipestoremember.net/.
