Flavors of Times Past: 31 recipes and memories of loved ones.
Ellie Markovitch uses food to connect to the past. She cooked, photographed, and recorded audio about her loved one’s recipes for one month. She was inspired by “Remembrance of Things Past” by Marcel Proust.
“…as soon as I had recognized the taste of the piece of madeleine soaked in her decoction of lime-blossom which my aunt used to give me …. immediately the old grey house upon the street, where her room was, rose up like a stage set to attach itself to the little pavilion opening on to the garden which had been built out behind it for my parents.”

What a moving collection Ellie. And such beautiful photographs. There is so much love in this – love for the people whose recipes you are sharing and love for food.
