Here’s an idea. Preserve family recipes by taking videos of the family member who makes it the best. Perhaps that person is you.
Ann-Terese Barket, aka The Food Archivist, thinks the perfect gift just might be a two-inch flash drive containing the video. Make lots of copies and distribute them as gifts. The videos do not need to be professional Hollywood productions. Your family members will probably appreciate watching the family expert “as is.”
Barket documents family recipes via videos and transcripts so they may be easily shared with relatives and friends. She officially started her business after realizing how important recipes were in maintaining the cherished culinary memories of her own family.
“But unofﬁcially, this has been (happening) since I was a little girl,” Barket said. “I would watch my dad cook all the recipes at our El Matador Restaurant. I documented his every move, and when he passed I felt the need to have a cookbook ﬁlled with his recipes.”
