Oakland resident Maria Lourdes Castellanos and her daughter Veronica have each learned recipes passed down for generations -- though Maria admits that she didn't try her hand at cooking until after she was married. Listen to this mother-daughter story from Season 1 of Hear Here, recorded at Laurel Elementary School.
This story was edited by Lisa Ratner in partnership with the Alameda County Community Food Bank.

Hear Here is part of a national initiative of AIR, the Association of Independents in Radio, Inc designed to bring new journalistic and technical ingenuity to extending public media service to more Americans. From Chinese restaurants in Boston, to shuttered factories in Dayton, to the oil fields of North Dakota, to Bay Area startups, the ten Localore production teams are working with their public station incubators to uncover ground-up stories of America in transition.
