The Coffee Shop – Grandmas Project – Knedle

The Coffee Shop is an open thread-style discussion forum for human interest news of the day.

From Chaï Chaï Films:  GRANDMAS PROJECT is a webseries – under the patronage of UNESCO – sharing the stories and recipes of grandmas around the world, filmed by their grandchildren.”


This is an open thread. There are several hosts, each host being responsible for picking a “theme of the day” and starting the discussion. However, there is no hard and fast rule about staying on topic, especially if you have a personal story burning a hole in your pocket trying to escape.
Pictures and videos are welcome in the comments.  If photos are used, please be sure you own the copyright. We would rather see your personal photos anyway, rather than random stuff copied from the internet.  Our only request is that if you use pictures or videos, take pity on those who don’t have broadband, and don’t post more than two or three in a single comment.

    Thanks Joy –

    What a charming idea! Good for UNESCO.

    I missed that experience with my grandmothers – by the time I came along, neither one of them really cooked.

    I did spend some time in the kitchen with my Great Aunts, who were still cooking into their 90s. I’ve never been able to duplicate their ‘burnt’ frosting for spice cake – an accidental discovery that really added to the flavor – not really burned, of course, but scorched just the tiniest bit. They were from the ‘a pinch of this and a handful of that’ school of the culinary arts, so nothing was written down.

  2. Good morning, Nona. We lived with my grandparents on a dairy farm when I was very small, and I was Grandma’s shadow, following her everywhere as she went through her daily routine – gathering eggs, picking berries, cooking … it was a sweet time.
