Depression Cooking Videos

Via Boing Boing: I discovered Clara’s cooking videos of meals from the Depression. She reminds me of my late grandmother, who taught me to make the best marinara sauce and stuffed artichokes and shared her own stories with us about growing up during the Depression in Brooklyn. Below, an episode featuring peppers and eggs sandwiches–something I remember when I was growing up–and another one with sugar cookies and coffee with condensed milk for Sunday breakfast.
