Eating In Eating Out

Eating In Eating Out is a project funded by Streetland, an arts festival in Govanhill which takes place on the 4th & 5th of May 2012.

It is organised by myself as part of the Glasgow Food Map project and Clem Sandison as part of the Hidden Gardens’ Culture Kitchen project.

We would like people in Govanhill to get involved in documenting, researching, exploring and sharing what they eat, how they eat it and where it’s from.

Eating in – Would you like to demonstrate one of your favourite recipes? We will be making short films of people cooking in their home to share with others on the Streetland website and at the festival. Get in touch with Clem Sandison (0141 433 2722, if you are interested or want to find out more.

Mapping it – How much do you know about food in your local area? Have you tried all the cafes, restaurants and take-aways? Who runs them? Where does the food in your local shop come from? We will be running a mapping day on Saturday 24th of March 11am – 4pm. Meet up at 11am at the Queens Cafe. We will be stopping for lunch at 1pm in the Govanhill Baths (soup provided) gathering back together at the Baths at 3pm to share what we have found out.

Eating out – As part of the mapping we will ask local cafes or restaurants to give us recipes for their favourite soups. Volunteers from Govanhill Grub and the Hidden Gardens Cultural Cookery group will select some of the recipes to form part of the mobile soup trolley which will be touring the streets of Govanhill during Streetland. Get in touch if you want more info about joining the cookery volunteers to cook and serve the soup.
