Ep. 08: Time & Talents Club 2.0?
On this episode, Bawi Bride Perzen Patel is in conversation with Vera Dinshaw Springett who pioneered an online community on Facebook called 'Parsis Exchange Recipes'.
Vera shares anecdotes from her childhood in Karachi and now as a parent in Chicago. Can food be an entity that unites us no matter what land we live in? How did an online community that exchanges Parsi recipes come into existence? Can the people you interact with online turn into real friends?
Vera and Perzen talk extensively about the importance of documenting not only Parsi food but the stories and memories various people have around those dishes. They discuss how online forums like Parsis Exchange Recipes are the 2.0 version of the historic Time & Talents Club where lost recipes can find a place to shine! Tune in to this conversation to find out how a simple online group can strengthen the sense of community and help forge new entrepreneurs too.
