Etched in Stone: Lessons from Recipes Found on Gravestones

  • January 29, 2024
  • 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • Zoom



Rosie Grant, a #gravetok Tiktoker, will delve into the research of finding and cooking gravestone recipes. Her work highlights the fascinating practice of inscribing gravestones with recipes from the past, shedding light on the historical significance of food and legacy.

At the intersection of food and loss, attendees will be shown how these culinary engravings offer a unique glimpse into the lives and memories of those who've come before us. Ultimately, a recipe on a gravestone underscores the importance of preserving our culinary legacies as a means of honoring our past and preserving our cultural heritage for future generations.

Rosie Grant is a part time digital librarian at the American Jewish University in Los Angeles and full time Outreach and Communications Manager at UCLA. She started her journey of researching and documenting gravestone recipes while interning in the archives of Congressional Cemetery during her MLIS graduate program at the University of Maryland.
