New York, NY, May 01, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- A Web Series about Food, Culture and History from the Point of View of Awesome Grandmothers.
Multimedia journalist Caroline Shin has launched a Kickstarter.com campaign for "Cooking with Granny," a Web series in which inspirational grandmas teach viewers how to cook traditional dishes from their cultures while sharing their touching life stories. Viewers not only get culinary tips from Grandmas in the know, but also a serving of their multicultural experiences starting in the 1940s. Whether the featured Granny is cooking Greek octopus, Chinese soup dumpling or Caribbean hot sauce, all fans will connect with these phenomenal “life-chefs” and unassuming yet poignant storytellers.
About The Kickstarter Campaign
Launched on Tuesday, April 22, 2014, the "Cooking with Granny" Kickstarter campaign runs for 30 days, ending on Wednesday, May 21, 2014. Rewards for backers include a comic book that depicts the making of one crazy episode; spice baskets for Korean, Indian and Caribbean cuisines; and a free flight to New York City for a specialized cultural food tour. Since Kickstarter runs on an all-or-nothing model, this project must reach its entire $11,000 funding goal in order to receive any monetary support.

Caroline Shin is a native New Yorker and multimedia journalist whose work has appeared in New York magazine (Vulture, The Cut, Grub Street, Daily Intelligencer and the iPad-version), NY1 and CNN.com. Her education spans Columbia Journalism School, Brown University and Hunter College High School.
"I've always said that food is culture -- a colorful, mouth-watering incarnation of culture," says Caroline Shin. "And in New York, where immigration flows in from all corners of the world, you're just surrounded by a delicious multiculturalism, and who can tell those stories better than our grandmas who have both lived it and cooked it while spoiling their grandchildren rotten?” Caroline, whose own grandma, Sanok Kim, provides the inspiration behind her work, affirms "Grannies rock!"
Remarking on her new Kickstarter venture, Caroline Shin comments, "It's scary and exciting. You're really putting your neck on the line, and it's definitely a lot of work. Fingers crossed that my project gets funded and I can make this show come to life."
