Kitchen-trawl, food-haul: Rescuing food (cultures)

To sign up: please register via Peatix.

Should children be kept out of the kitchen?
When did you first learn to cook?
How does the time and space we live in shape our care for food?

We draw from memory to market to kitchen & sink. To trawl your memory, draw your kitchen, find some space for a life-style.

*Vegetarian brunch/lunch at the Pop-up cafe by Nithiya is available from 10am-2pm

How to attend

Get a free ticket via Peatix. You can contribute on the day with what you think the event is worth and what you can afford.
We recommend $5 - we welcome more or less, and it comes with a drink.

100% of the costs go towards the use of the space at Nong, who’ve been kindly supporting us in Thinking Edibly so far.

Objective: We look at the traditions and relationships with food and food-associated activities, particular to Singapore and the region.

Speakers: Guest home chefs: Nithiya of #brunchbandits and Alvin Lee of CULTlinary

From what we eat to how we learn to cook, we take you on a mapping journey of the role of food in our lives--of childhood and daily experiences, of where you pick your groceries, to the way your food spaces at home and in public are designed. We want you to stop. Think. Draw. With each other’s senses and eyes, we set out to understand what our food culture in Singapore is. We might have an easy abundance of food, but is there a missing pleasure in food that we can't quite find today? Join us to figure out how we can create a better space in this home, this island, for yourself and the people you care and love. Time to rescue some food (cultures)!

This is part 1 of a series of two sessions on Food Education and Food Waste. Join us for part 2, Food Waste on 27 November!
