Lindy Mechefske at the Kingston WritersFest podium and with author patrons Judith Irwin and Richard Henriksen
Lindy Mechefske, the author of Out of Old Ontario Kitchens, was honoured to be part of the line-up at the recent Kingston WritersFest 2018 – widely regarded as one of the biggest and best literary festivals in Canada.
"It's fabulous to see food writing finally being taken seriously," says Lindy. "We've long paid homage to other literary genres while regarding food writing, like food preparation, as primarily 'women's work.' The truth is, food stories are the real stories of our lives and there is little more fundamental or important to the human race or the future of the planet than food."
