So, I thought, since there was interest, I would share with you the summary for Confictionary Tales. I am very excited with the shape this project is taking. Now I just have to figure out how to make it work. I am finally starting to see it take shape in my minds eye, though, and that is very exciting! So, here is the summary in all it’s raw glory. I hope you enjoy!
Confictionary Tales Summary
In a time that has changed the very words they use, not to mention the changes that have come to those who have survived, food is not as it once was, and flavors have melded together, not to mention food is not called by the same names anymore.
This means that our hopeful untried chef must brave failures on their own, without grandmother’s pages to guide. What few pages are left, are using antiquated names that are hard to understand and figure out, the language lost.
Knowing that if they are ever to create a name for themselves they must first figure out the lost recipes from grandmothers book, they set out to explore and create. One page, one recipe at a time, they hone their skills.
With both failures and great successes, they find their way to crafting the family heritage. Food that both sustains and heals. Food that expresses the joys of family and the test of time.
There are many ideas on this taking shape, but I am still working through the details! What do you think? Does this sound like a cookbook and tale you would enjoy? What do you think would make it better? How do you see it working best? Please share in the comments below!
