Collective project focused in the multicultural life in the city of Leipzig, Germany. Pointing out international immigration to the former East Germany after the Wall Fall, the project wants to highlight the current identities in the city through cooking events where people are invited to take the everyday food they prepare at home, according with their cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
The events set tables where visitors put their food, and can remix them with other ingredients and species, looking for new dishes or mixes that can illustrate possible new dishes, as a portrait of the current multicultural mixes in today Leipzig. Besides, the participants were interviewed and invited to take part in a diagram on multicultural perceptions on the city life.
