Food is a key ingredient in every family’s history: Dad’s Saturday morning pancakes, the marzipan Granny served every Christmas, your Sicilian great-great-grandmother’s spaghetti sauce recipe. And we want you to share your family’s food traditions with us.

Family Tree Books is collecting short essays for a book about real family recipes and the memories that surround them. We’ll select eight submissions to feature in the book based on these criteria:

  • Submissions should be between 1,000 and 2,000 words.
  • Essays should tell the story of a real tradition, including:
  • What is the tradition?
  • Who started it and when?
  • What cultural or regional background does the dish or tradition represent? (for example, is it a US regional specialty or a product of your ancestry in Germany, Sweden, Mexico, etc.?)
  • What does the tradition mean to you and your family?
  • Submissions should include the recipe described in the story and a family photo—of the original chef, people described in the story or yourself. (Pictures of the dish itself may be submitted but likely will not be published.)

To enter: E-mail your essay to FTMedit@fwmedia.com with the subject line Family Food Traditions no later than July 13, 2011. To be considered, submissions must adhere to the following specifications:

  • Essays must be in Microsoft Word (.DOC or .RTF) or plain-text format (.TXT). Do not paste your essay into the body of the email.
  • Photos must be in JPG or TIFF format, with a resolution of 300 dpi or higher.
  • Your name, mailing address, phone number and email address must be included in the email message and the essay document.
