As a journalism major and history minor, I have a passion for both writing and historic conservation. I also love to bake and am lucky to have grown up very close with both of my grandmothers. Thus, the creation The Old Country Blog!
As a child, I heard family lore from my German grandmother (who married a tall, dark and handsome Lebanese man) about the old countries. And, food was often a major plot point. Fables and cuisine are the essence of culture, and it is my goal to record my family's heritage.
Here, I want to preserve authentic recipes from my motherland and yours, by providing dishes and tales from across the globe! I am compiling recipes and stories from my family and friends to bring the Internet the most authentic ethnic dishes!
