Tell me what you eat… and I will tell you what you are.

Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

The foods we savour are expressions of our heritage or identity. Yet, rapid globalisation, migration and modern-day lifestyles threaten our valuable food heritage. Now, traditional regional family recipes, sometimes handed down through generations, are often lost, altered or replaced with convenience foods by time-poor parents.  

So, preserve your cultural heritage by uploading your treasured family recipes here. Keep them safe forever and share them with friends and family. No matter if you’re a migrant, from generations of settlers or an Indigenous person, food fills your heart as well as your stomach. It’s part of who you are. So celebrate, safeguard and share it now.  We also hope that you share the story of what the recipe means to you and your family and even upload photos or videos.

Or, simply explore the world right here, country-by-country, region-by-region, village-by-village, through its local cuisine.

  • Safeguard your treasured family recipes
  • Share your food heritage
  • Document your family story
  • Explore the world through its food

Food is a central activity of mankind and one of the single most significant trademarks of a culture.
