Cooking Stories

Cooking Stories, Julie Shiels

Cooking Stories was an exhibition with food, recipes & storytelling at its core.

The vital ingredient in this exhibition was a story about a meal with an associated event. By concentrating on food we captured the story from a totally different angle, accessible to people of any background. This way of telling stories is a powerful way of describing something of life, culture, identity and the importance of food.The result is a collection of stories that reflect the refugee jouney in all its diversity.
