Food Stories – the afterlife of a research project

It’s obviously been quite a while since this blog was updated, but that doesn’t mean we have forgotten about Consuming Authenticities!

In fact, plenty of exciting developments have been quietly happening behind the scenes, which I will write more about over the coming weeks and months:

Food Stories, led by Emma-Jayne Abbots (of cider case study fame), is a collaborative project between University of Wales, Trinity St David, the University of Leicester and Stories On Our Plate (SOOP), an organisation that champions the use of food and storytelling for fostering dialogue and cross-cultural understanding. In addition, SOOP offers culinary support initiatives for home cooks with refugee and migrant backgrounds wishing to gain a foothold in the food and catering industry, and using food stories to share and connect with diners in London. The project aims to foster cross-cultural understanding through cooking and eating food, and by sharing stories of culinary heritage and cultural identity, via a series of creative activities – including cooking workshops, a cookbook, and café-style cookbook launch seminars – in Bradford, Coventry and London.
