Talk about a fascinating collection: A Dash and a Dollop was introduced at the end of November, featuring “dishes that came to America by boat in the 1800s to meals that saw families through the Great Depression”, according to an Atria press release.
Residents not only shared their favorite recipes but also the stories behind them, concocting a beautiful blend of “family legacies, traditions and customs.”
Since food is at the center of most social and family gatherings, it made perfect sense to fill the pages of this unique cookbook with more than just recipes.
Ronda Watson, Atria’s VP of Culinary Services, talked about the “pivotal role of the kitchen” as the inspiration for many of the recipes and stories in the book. She adds that many of Atria’s culinary directors have prepared some of these beloved dishes for the entire community to enjoy.
All 13,000 Atria Senior Living residents will receive a copy of A Dash and a Dollop this month, but the general public will soon be able to purchase it online at Barnes & Noble (a great gift idea for those who still have a few names on their holiday shopping lists).
