Preserving Family Recipes: A Writing Workshop with Cynthia Nims

Preserving Family Recipes: A Writing Workshop with Cynthia Nims In-Person

Preserving cherished recipes from family and friends is a meaningful way to keep traditions alive and to ensure associated memories remain vibrant.

Join Cynthia Nims for a workshop focused on the value of these most beloved recipes. Cynthia has been writing recipes for cookbooks and magazines for many years. Inspiration for those recipes comes from countless sources, among them are recipes that had a beginning in her mom’s kitchen. She’ll talk about the treasure that she considers her mother’s falling-apart recipe folder to be. And she’ll share examples of how recipes that may seem a bit dated can find a place in your kitchen today. Bring along a cherished family recipe or two, if you like. There will be time for an informal exercise to help capture the stories of these recipes. 

Cynthia Nims is a Seattle-based author and consultant. Her most recent cookbook, Shellfish, was released in early 2022. Previous books include Oysters and Salty Snacks. Cynthia has served as the food editor of Seattle magazine, editor of Simply Seafood magazine and has contributed to Alaska Airlines Beyond, Cooking Light, and Coastal Living, among others. She publishes a bi-weekly newsletter Seafood Savvy available on Substack.

In addition and in partnership with the Sun Valley Culinary Institute. On Friday, January 27 and Sunday, January 29, Cynthia will also lead classes at the SVCI on "Gourmet Game Night" and "Homemade Salty Snacks." Learn more here.
