Every single day, about three times a day, we all eat food. From the super sweet snacks to the richly spiced soups - we’ve gathered together countless times with friends and family to share our companionship and our meals. Whether it’s a hot barbeque or cold ice cream, food has this magical quality to motivate our minds and warm our hearts. Today, we’ll share savory stories from Laura Pershin Raynor, Kevin Carr, Joseph Bruchac, and Doug Elliot.  On today’s episode, enjoy the following: Radio Family Journal: Book Fair Daily Mix: Rachel Wadham discusses “Scary Stories For Young Foxes” Story Spotlight: “A Day At The Zoo” Laura Pershin Raynor(10:32) Storytime: “Bill Greenfield’s Breakfast” by Joseph Bruchac(6:25) “Bake that Chicken Pie” by Doug Elliot (4:07) “Sweet Tooth” by Kevin Carr (12:05) Storyteller Spotlight: Laura Pershin-Raynor “As a child, I was a story sponge whenever family gathered. All it took was a “tish mit menschem”, a table with people, for the stories to fly. My Grandma Dinah, who lived to be 105 years old, raised me on the tales of the Old Country, providing me with a landscape for my own stories.  As a fourth generation storyteller from a family filled with wacky characters, I have been telling tales of secret messages, delicious recipes gone wrong and outrageous tricksters, for the past thirty years.  I’ve had the honor of performing as a Teller in Residence at the International Storytelling Center , and I’ve been featured at the Celebration of Light Festival in TX, the Timpanogos Festival in UT and the Mariposa Festival in CA, to name a few.”
