This Saturday will be the second in a series of ethnic baking/cooking demonstrations held at the Canon City Queen Anne.
With Comfort Food Chef Linda Ballard being half German and half Italian these two events are dear to her heart as it brings back her learning these recipes from her mother and relatives.
We have held these events for the past two years and they are well received as the attendees get “real, authentic” ethnic recipes and they get to watch them prepared, as well as taste them.
The Art of German cooking reminds me of the times that we traveled to McCook, Nebraska for the Brenning Family Reunions; Brennings being the German/Russian family who migrated to America.
We would partake in these recipes, eating every imaginable recipes, prepared by those who were taught by true immigrants.
We would sit around and listen to the stories that were passed along from generation to generation, learning the heritage of the family, while be amazed at what they went through.
Our children and grand children would be amazed at the event, even with their grumbling in having to go, and I do believe it contributed to a extended family perspective. They could connect with history, something different than text messaging or gaming of today.
? does anyone sell a pet mobile phone collar, so we can get our two poodles connected to the Internet, text messaging; they could let us know when they want “goodies.”
The food is representative of a culture, which my dear wife Linda, loves to share and pass along, that is why The Art of German Cooking is something to attend (it comes around once a year.)
