2015 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Pascale and Adachi will travel to domestic kitchens all around Philadelphia and practice traditional culinary arts as a mode of expressing identity, preserving culture, and promoting health amongst people of African heritage. Pascale and Adachi believe that cooking is not only essential to our physical health, but also fundamental to our spiritual health and identity – and they hope to resuscitate obsolete and dying traditions that have been responsible for keeping communities alive and healthy. Pascale and Adachi’s project will be shared in an installation of dishes, photographs, recipes, and live demonstrations that showcase both the beauty of African Heritage cooking, as well as the impact of culinary arts as a tool for healthy communities.
