Another Year: Creative Culinary Residency in the forests of Western Canada

Another year to create surprising tasty meals in the middle of nowhere for Canadians of all-over the country. Same kitchen on wheel in the middle of a deserted green region, 60 hungry people provided morning and night to taste the creations, a big budget for new material every 5 days for 3 months. The intrinsic relations in a huis-clos kitchen were under the telescope this year. The artist had a great residency with Folklore Contractings from Mai 2019 to early August 2019.
