KITCHEN WASTE BACK TO THE TABLE
´Where did my red cabbage and carrot tops go?'
Netherlands produce 0.8 billion kilos of food waste a year. How can we recycle the kitchen waste from cooking back to the dining table?
Nothing lasts forever, everything has a lifespan. Natural colors from most vegetable dyes also fade away. Biological food goes bad faster, its the reality we cannot hide. The colors of the woven tablecloth will start to fade away in some parts, also depending on which parts are covered most of the times or not (e.g flower vase always standing on 1 spot). The items placed on the tablecloth will manipulate the pattern. Each vegetable give different colour and nothing is repeated once again; same as cooking, nothing is ever exactly the same, which makes the taste unique each time.
According to the dye colors, the possibilities of one ingredient can expand in dishes, new possibilities and combinations can be found as inspiration. Through events based on cooking with one specific ingredient can be celebrated on the dining table combining cultures together. Food allows us a platform to further talk about issues related to food production, consumption, cultures, climate change and politics.
