Created by Carole Murko, Heirloom Meals offers a multi-media culinary journey into the kitchens and gardens of anyone who has a treasured family recipe with the goal of exploring our diverse culinary history and preserving our ancestors tried and true recipes and dining traditions.
In many ways the old ways of learning how to cook have been lost in the go-go world of our fast food nation. Our mission is to preserve the tradition of heritage foods and recipes by delving into the rich and diverse cultural food histories that make up the melting pot of the United States and paying tribute to the dying art of cooking from scratch.
We explore old wives tales leading to some of our favorite recipes and concoctions and explore the connection between food, farming, the earth, nutrition and family life.
This channel features a series of Quick and Simple Recipes and Techniques for cooking and baking; Carole's appearances in the Let's Eat Kitchen on Newschannel13 Albany and some highlights of Heirloom Meals two Holiday Television Specials broadcast nationally on PBS.
