This series of culinary workshops is a collaboration of the food scholars, artists, food advocates and cooks from Indigenous communities around the province who will gather virtually through technology and in-situ. Through cooking and discussions of wild rice and maple syrup these workshops will build an understanding of the network of relations from which each featured ingredient emerges.
The workshops will present food’s capacity to connect people with places, history and a sense of belonging while thinking through issues of power relations related to food access and cultivation. Inspired by the idea of cooking-as-inquiry this series values learning by cooking with the cooks around us, and the generations that came before.
Seasonal ingredients for these workshops will be purchased from participating indigenous communities to directly support their economies and highlight issues of food security.
This project is supported through Toronto Arts Council Strategic Funding.
