Save the Flavours

Interactive installation and story gathering, a celebration of the diversity of our food and cooking. Roll up for your culinary heritage!

Gingham clad ladies engage passers by to join in their mission to "Save the Flavours" by delving into their kitchen table tombola with a difference. Sacks of beans, magical recipe books and hidden plant pots hold hundreds of other people's real lost or forgotten flavours for participants to find and contribute to.

From Granny's old recipes to endangered apple varieties, all lovingly collected and revitalised. The piece celebrates the diversity of our cooking, varieties and recipes and inspires people to do their little bit in keeping this diversity alive... "plant a seed, record a family recipe, teach a child to cook a local food".
