"The Mormon culinary tradition is hard to pin down, but today it is rapidly evolving," notes a New York Times article titled "A New Generation Redefines Mormon Cuisine."

With a membership of 14 million worldwide, LDS members and their recipes are going international. The article makes note of the Word of Wisdom, Bishops' Storehouses and food storage. A new generation of cooks use food blogging and online recipe-sharing to distribute recipes such as granola and homemade yogurt while traditions such as green Jell-O and funeral potatoes are being reinterpreted.
