Gramma Wilma taught Toni Burnett Rands to bake a sweet potato pie. Granny Ivy’s beef enchiladas were the first meal made in a new home. Toni, “an American Creole from Hawaii, by way of Las Vegas, with many stops in between,” is joining a strong family line of matriarchs who passed down hunting, preserving and cooking skills through generations. A young Toni sat in family circles, learning to shell peas and peel sweet potatoes. But Toni was also learning stories and lessons that go with each traditional recipe. Now based in lutruwita/Tasmania, Toni’s is using her cooking skills to transport the community to her grandmother's kitchen.
