This Company Makes It Easy to Voice Record Heirloom Family Recipes
Every holiday, we eat a meal made up of each family member's signature dish. My grandma cooks the turkey, my aunt bakes a sweet potato dish, and my mom always makes her famous crispy green bean casserole. I love this holiday potluck of sorts, but I've been looking for a way to gather all of these recipes so I can make them for my own family one day. I recently discovered Dishtory, a new app that makes it easy to record family recipes.
Cookie craving spurs app to document family recipes
It all started in December, 2019 when Dan Zawisza was craving his mom’s Christmas sugar cookies. He knew the ingredients and the steps to make them. But when he tried something was off. So mom called her son and left a detailed voicemail explaining how to execute her recipe properly. “So I have not only my mom’s recipe, but I have it in my mom’s voice that I don’t think can be replicated in any cookbook,” Mr. Zawisza said.
New app let's users record, save and share family memories.

Oh how I wish we had videotaped my husband’s grandmother in her kitchen preparing recipes from the Old Country. Those recipes were lost when YiaYia passed away and as hard as I try, I can’t completely replicate the flavors and textures she produced with her experienced hands. She made her own filo dough. How? We will never really know. Her stuffed cabbage, a family favorite, had some twist that remains with her. So many recipes have been lost.
