May Writing Workshop with Recipes from the Heart at FPL

Suzie Stephens in the Nibbles Kitchen

Fayetteville Public Library presents a writing workshop, Recipes From the Heart:  Documenting Family Stories Through Our Links with Food on Saturday, May 10 at 1:00pm in the Walker Room, Main Library.

This writing workshop explores the powerful connections we make over food.  Many of our strongest family memories will center around holiday dinners, picnics, or special dining experiences. Ties to friends over tailgating, wine tasting, and outdoor barbeque events improve with food. This workshop will show you the best ways to capture those memories and recipes in writing, so you can share them with family, friends, and future generations.

Workshop leader, Chef Suzie Stephens, a renowned cookbook author and owner of Nibbles, has served up savory food for thirty years. She credits her mother and Julia Child for her cooking inspiration. She received her teaching certificate from University of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and later received a stocks/sauces qualification from Cordon Bleu Cooking School in Paris and a C.E.C. (certified chef) designation from the American Culinary Federation. Her new cookbook in-progress captures a family history of recipes and memories.

This program was made possible in part by a grant from the Department of Arkansas Heritage, funded by your 1/8 cent conservation tax, Amendment 75. The workshop is free and open to the public; no registration requested.

Nancy Hartney writes fiction, short stories, poetry, and non-fiction articles. Her full bio can be found at
