Telling Your Story Through Food

CLassroom: Room 8, Level U2, Block C5, Publika.

A workshop by Cheryl Tan.

Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan is the author of the new novel “Sarong Party Girls” as well as the critically acclaimed food memoir “A Tiger in the Kitchen,” which New York magazine named one of the “Top 25 Must-Read Food Memoirs of All Time.” “Tiger” tells the story of a year that she spent traveling from the United States, her adopted country, to her native Singapore, so she could reconnect with her family and learn about her family history and cultural identity by learning how to cook in the kitchens of her grandmother and aunties. This workshop will discuss food memoir as a construct, how to tell powerful stories using the lens of food, and how to go about reporting and creating this narrative. Please come with an idea of a food memoir you would like to pursue and write — perhaps with a little bit that you can read (just a paragraph or a few) — so we can discuss it.
