Stone Soup: How Recipes Can Preserve History and Nourish Community

  • Fresh Thyme Soup Company 16155 NW Cornell Rd., Ste. 500 Beaverton, OR 97006 (map)

How do recipes work? Why do we collect them? Who do we write them for? How can recipes help us connect and create communities across time, distance, and culture? This is the focus of “Stone Soup: How Recipes Can Preserve History and Nourish Community,” a free conversation with Jennifer Roberts. The program is hosted by the Washington County Museum and sponsored by Oregon Humanities. Participants are encouraged to bring any treasured recipes they’d like to share with the group. These recipes may end up in a story-based collection compiled throughout this Conversation Project program.

Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state's future. For more information about this free community discussion, please contact the Washington County Museum’s Education Director at
