Bring your memories. Forget your manners. Chew on your tastes. Swallow your stories. Storytelling and taste are one and the same.
Food is more than taste. It is culture, memories, identity. We are creatures of habits, and food is probably where it is more engrained. Restaurant culture was founded on the principle of repeating the same dish to ‘perfection’. With less and less food for more and more people crowding this planet, we are seeking a new relationship to food, one where we are agile in experimentation, one where we are fearless and creative.
Food session is conceived as a pop-up installation, complimentary to any food experience, whether it be at a restaurant, a special event banquet, a food truck. Silent disco style, participants are guided through a guided meditation on food, a shared journey in the form of a meal. Together participants explore ways to eat with all their senses, opening up their imagination and senses, calling on their memories, sharing their culture.
Participants share a meal while being guided, by wireless headphones, through the sensory experience, memories and emotions associated with the food they are eating.
An experience at once collective and personal, it stages a series of exercises that challenge and enrich participants relationships with the food they consume and the people they share it with.
Food Sessions is a pop-up installation, soon to be at a food truck or special event near you. Bring your stories and your appetite, you will eat with your ears and your heart.
Presented in Montréal, Biarritz, San Francisco, and in New York City for Food Loves Tech.
