Food for Our Grief

We can build a whole community of support and love just around the dining table. In many cultures, food connects us to our ethnic, family and spiritual traditions. Food can also play an important role in grieving – whether it be food that reminds us of our loved one, food we eat to heal and nurture our hearts or recipes that our loved one left us. What are some of yours?

"Food, like a loving touch or a glimpse of divine power, has that ability to comfort."

– Norman Kolpas

那是还小,没有外婆亲手做的肉丸相片。但是回想起来,我还是想念星期六晚上的家庭聚会。因为每个星期,外婆都会做我爱吃的肉丸。她每个星期都会做,中风康复之后还在继续做直到她逝世的那一个月。真怀念。希望将来有机会,还能吃到她做的肉丸。

Miss the Satay we always eat. Now that my mother has gone, no one eats the ketupat anymore.

Love the Ayam Penyet I used to share with my grandfather when he was around. Now that he's gone, I leave half a plate uneaten when I miss him.

This is one of the pictures that we took during Deepavali a couple years ago. My grandpa, Samy, made a wonderful Idli and tomato chutney which I loved so much. Every Deepavali, the smell of batter steaming reminds me of  him.
