Recipe for a City Feast

Recipe for a City Feast

 

Birminghammmmm… it’s a feast! We gathered recipes and food memories from many traditions, faiths and cultures at a series of workshops at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. And at an intergenerational writing workshop called ‘My Mother’s Cookbook’, people wrote family stories written between the lines in cookery notebooks and oral traditions. Comfort food, ancestral memories, hunger, battles of will or wish – food carries all sorts of resonances and symbolism, not all of it easy.

Recipe for a City Feast, our leaflet gathering many people’s work, launches at the Faiths Gallery at 1.30pm on Sat 10th Feb, with an open mic recipe swap – all welcome – bring your own recipe to add to the mix.
