What do you get when you blend immersive performance with compelling storytelling and a diverse menu of home-cooked dishes? Well, you can taste the final product yourself, when Double Delicious hits the stage at Bunjil Place this month.

Showing Friday, May 20–Saturday, May 21, Contemporary Asian Australian Performance's smash-hit production sees five performers share their stories via a unique mix of theatre and cooking. They'll each take you on a deep dive into their past and culture while whipping up a signature dish that's particularly meaningful to their personal identity. And yes, you'll get to taste their culinary creations, too.

Among the lineup is Valerie Berry, who shares her defining childhood experience of moving from Manila to outback South Australia; and writer and media personality Benjamin Law, who delivers a humorous look at growing up on the Sunshine Coast as the son of immigrant parents.

Tickets to Double Delicious come in at $70, which includes tastings of all five performers' dishes.
