This live cooking show combines storytelling and sautéing from the like of writer Benjamin Law and kim chi master Heather Jeong.
Far more than simply sustenance, food is about bringing people together, creating an experience and sharing something of yourself. Preparing a meal is an act of love, and it's this attitude that a handful of revered cooks will be bringing to Abbotsford Convent for Double Delicious.
There's a story behind every dish, and the storytellers — which include prolific writer Benjamin Law, chef and kimchi master Heather Jeong, and choreographer Raghav Handa — will be spinning a yarn while slicing and sautéing to tell you what food means to them, both personally and in terms of its cultural significance. It'll be an experience that promises to be equal servings mouth-watering and mind-altering.
The show is part of Asia TOPA, Melbourne's three-month celebration of performing arts in the Asia Pacific region.
