I reviewed a recent publication (Feb 2012) ‘Food and the City‘ for Good Food Revolution, Canada’s good food and wine news site, based in Toronto. It’s a good update to other recent books on the subject, with some interesting case studies from Canada, the USA and Europe.
The Eating In Eating Out exhibition opened at the Govanhill Baths on Thursday 6th of September.
It will be on right through September and you can visit the exhibition 11m – 3pm Monday to Friday.
The exhibition features a new version of the Govanhill food map and we are looking for visitors to add their own local food experiences and memories. You can see the film Eating In produced by Clem Sandison and Kim Beverage, showcasing a mouthwatering range of recipes demonstrated by Govanhill residents. You can also pick up recipes from all the soups and meals that have been cooked as part of the project.
The soup trolley made a reappearance at the opening to serve freshly made pea and lentil soups, courtesy of Marion from Govanhill Grub.
Myself and Annechien, as A Growing Exchange have been commissioned to help design and develop a Glasgow Exchange Market in the Merchant City in July. It is part of the Culture Kitchen project, directed by Clem Sandison. The commission was inspired by Clem Sandison and Katherine Van Den Berg’s visit to the Hague in October and seeing the Green Exchange Market in action, organised by Annechien Meier, as part of Stroom’s Dag Hap festival.
