September 10, 2014 – Depression Cooking with Clara – Dandelion Salad

This is Clara. She lived through the great depression. She and her family had to learn how to make food with very little or no money. She is resourceful and quite adorable.
All the episodes are filmed by her grandson who writes:
Nearly two years ago I filmed the first episode of what was to become “Great Depression Cooking with Clara”. At the time the episode was intended to help me remember how my Grandmother created the meals I had enjoyed eating over the years. I wasn’t sure if I could capture the magic of her storytelling and the details of the cooking at the same time (there are no second takes with Clara, if she did it once she doesn’t feel the need to do it again).

When I began editing I found that Clara’s exuberance and wit continued to shine. I put a little extra polish on her authentic personality and the episodes retained a feeling of a laid back afternoon in your favorite relative’s kitchen. I hope you enjoy watching Clara as much as I have enjoyed bringing her to you.
