Edible Stories; Edible Worlds (Goa)

Sunday, 5th February, 11:30 – 3:30pm

Join Edible Archives and the Food Art Research Network for a meal while we exchange stories about food, terrain/territory and migration. 

Based in Goa (and now Bangalore) EDIBLE ARCHIVES is a project that researches indigenous Indian ingredients, working directly with small farmers to showcase these ingredients, and the cultures around them, at its eponymous restaurant and kitchen garden. 

For this event, we gather as researchers to connect with Goa and its terrain. We invite you to participate by delving into your own archives of ingredients and the stories they tell.

This is an opportunity to share stories that connect you to Goa via an ingredient, plant or recipe. It may be a local ingredient that speaks to you? Or an ingredient that has travelled with you from where you live? Or maybe the ingredient reminds you of the Goan terrain?  We invite you to bring an ingredient plant or recipe that connects to the way food travels across borders, connects to memory, and bridges colonial histories of trade, migrations of people, industrial monocultures and the transformation of ecosystems.

As eating together is its own form of connection, we’ll provide a simple “food stories” lunch with local Goan ingredients to spark conversation. Opportunities for spontaneous cooking will also be available for those who want to share their ingredients in a dish.

With artists / food researchers: Anumitra Ghosh Dastidar, Shalini Krishan, Keg de Souza, Madeleine Collie, Malini Kochupillai, Meenakshi Thirukode.

Part of FAR Network research conducted throughout 2023-24, supported by Monash University Curatorial Practice and the Australia Council for the Arts.
