Workshop | Yutang Food
From December 2019 to January 2020
The workshop took everyone to search for food in Tai Sang Wai and explore the origin of the food-fish ponds and fields. After that, everyone turned the ingredients into a delicious delicacy.
"Surfing in the Pond" is like seeing the fish pond and the food at a glance, but I think that in fact the main course of human-to-human communication is first. The highlight of the whole workshop was that everyone exchanged their own recipes, and they had to cook each other’s recipes. I guess it’s because I’ve seen it twice. If you’ve never met before, you can cook together and cook Lei through cooking. It’s a success. When everyone doesn't even know the other's lifestyle and background, they can help each other to cook a perfect dish. I believe that trust is built during the cooking process. Finally, I hope everyone cooks and eats more with the people around you!
