Soul Food

It's true when they say that food brings friends and family together.

This series of stories focuses on young people and their favourite dishes passed down from their mothers, fathers, aunties, uncles and grandparents. It celebrates the connection between food and culture; how food often acts as a gateway to stories of yesteryear. The dishes in this series are particularly special to our storytellers, all of whom have migrant parents or grandparents, and use food as a firm foundation for their understanding of their family's history and culture, and connects them to foreign yet familiar lands. 

Thank you to our storytellers: Alina Tang, Mason Vellios, Elisha Rahimi, Johanna Acs and Jay Anderson.
