Find the Feed Me a Story food truck at the Hester Street Fair and share one of your family secret recipes in exchange for a treat! The recipes from various participants will culminate in a video cookbook. Using a refreshment cart as a vehicle to cross cultural boundaries, the stories collected will focus on the sensorial memories that are held as sacred in family, food and community. By answering questions like “What is your favorite childhood food?”, “What was the first recipe you learned to cook?” and “What food is important to your cultural experience?” the project incorporates cultural history and contemporary influences. Bring friends and family with you. You may be surprised by what secrets they share. Feed Me a Story is a project of Laura Nova and Theresa Loong, in special partnership with The Treats Truck and Kim Ima.
