Following the success of the first workshop and the resulting publication, Eating Stories: A Chinese Canadian & Aboriginal Potluck is the result of CCHSBC’s second community writing workshop with the theme – Food and Family. Twenty-three participants of Chinese Canadian or Aboriginal backgrounds researched, discussed, and wrote their memories of family gatherings, home cooking, restaurant outings, and other stories cooked up by the smells, tastes, sounds, sights, and textures that bring families and communities together.
