Food as Culture Project: Food as Story, Food as Legacy


LitWorld is excited to announce a new Food and Culture project we will be working on this spring! Food is such an integral and important part of our stories, and we all have memories, recipes and anecdotes of those favorite (or least favorite!) dishes that we grew up with - in our homes, our celebrations, our daily lives, whether prepared by family members, in local restaurants or passed through generations for you to cook!

The first food we are learning about is simple - EGGS! Do you have traditions surrounding eating and preparing eggs? Do you have a delicious recipe from your life that you would like to share with us? 

We are looking to highlight how this common and nutritious food touches communities all over the world, so please send us your anecdotes, recipes, pictures or even videos of eggs being prepared or served at different times in your community or home.

Share your recipes & culinary stories on social media @litworldsays on Twitter, @litworld on Instagram, and

We look forward to hearing from you!
