“Cook It With Others” – Workshop with Cocinar Madrid

Lab 0

Cocinar Madrid is a project in which ethnography and cooking are brought into play to investigate what is happening in local markets and neighbourhoods. For Idea Camp they propose participatory methodologies related to the act of cooking in order to draw the collective map of biographical and culinary itineraries of people participating at the event. This invitation to cook, in a simple but tasty manner, is the opportunity to tell our personal stories through food, to add ingredients, to unveil those secrets that are only told when we are amongst pots and steam, to get to know each other, by reconstructing personal and collective memories and by inhabiting differently the places we share.

Cocinar Madrid is a collective comprised of anthropologists, cultural managers and cooks who facilitate groups in their exploration of community links, identities and bridges through collective cooking.
