Edible Memoir Taster Course (LAKESIDE)

April 22 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Our memories of food: they can take us back to the heady aromas of our grandmother’s cooking, negotiations around the contents of lunchboxes, an incident at the family breakfast table, the stench of compulsory school dinners and the hollow pain of going without.

Is our first food memory that of our mother’s milk? Maybe so. Often, because nourishing food and adequate shelter tend to go together, good food memories are about a feeling of home – of warmth and belonging. These memories can both feed and comfort us.

In this course, based on our established Life Writing Memoir Course, we will use exercises to write stories that focus on all the senses and emotions conjured by food. We will share those memories and also share our food – bringing to the communal lunch table each day a simple edible memory, a part of who we are expressed in what we eat.

Facilitator: Giles Griffin

Fee: R850
