TASTE SHOP – DINNERS AUGUST 25 – SEPTEMBER 3
How do we create a more diverse city by examining ingredients? The design and art platform Underverk has teamed up with meal ecologist Ayhan Aydin and Deriva Paper to create a set of five immersive dinners that will explore ingredients through the city of Stockholm. From August 25 – September 3 Taste Shop will take over a container on Hötorgsterassen with the aim to create a new type of eating experience using all our senses. Prepare for getting immersed in thought-provoking conversations and one or two surprises.
"When spending a lot of time exploring the texture and taste of crops, you start to understand how much the cultivation process matters," Ayhan Aydin says. "In order to get a more complex and alive food culture, the biological diversity is key. A carrot does not just have one type of flavour, there are variations, sometimes so small you hardly notice it. But if you give enough attention to it, you will start to appreciate it."
While Ayhan Aydin has been busy foraging wild bird cherry flowers in Fittja together with experience designer Josefin Vargö, trend analyst Jonna Dagliden Hunt has called for more conversations around the future of food, and editor of Deriva Paper, Helena Öhman, has wandered the streets of Sibirien and Hötorget trying to find new ways of exploring the city through our senses. The result? Taste Shop – Dinners!
