Huron County residents are invited to share favourite family recipes through a new community arts project that ignites multicultural and social conversations through the love of art and food.

Using art as a tool for engagement, participants will come together this fall to reflect on their family’s traditions and culture through the sharing of a special family recipe that will be published in a community cookbook. Professional artists Bethany Ann Davidson, Pam Lobb and Autumn Ducharme will each lead a two-part workshop where they will guide participants through the process of sharing the story behind their recipe and creating a piece of art inspired by their recipe. The completed artwork will be scanned and added to the cookbook, along with the recipes. The cookbook Tastes Like Home, Around the World in Huron County will be available for purchase later this fall.

Workshops will begin during Newcomer Welcoming Week in September and are free to attend but limited to 15 in each of three Huron County Library locations:

  • Exeter Branch – Sept. 14 and 28 from 5-8 p.m., with artist Autumn Ducharme
  • Goderich Branch – Sept. 9 and 23 from 1-4 p.m., with artist Pam Lobb
  • Alice Munro Branch, Wingham – Sept. 12 and 19 from 1-4 p.m., with artist Bethany Ann Davidson

Registrations will be curated based on the recipes submitted to ensure a wide variety of tastes and representation from all regions of the County. A minimum one-third of the participants will be newcomers.
