Food Core is an invitation for Montreal foodies to taste, explore and learn, thereby contributing to our collective knowledge of food staples. It is a collaboration between a chef and a scholar to present a basic food item before it has been overly processed and demonstrating how it can transform in magical ways. Together, our presenters will break it down to its basic chemical components, explore its social and historical contexts and surprise us with its possibilities.
In a playful gourmet environment and with a democratic approach, participants will be invited to explore the featured food hands-on and explode preconceived ideas around it: Where does it come from? What does it say about us? What directions can it take us in?
This edition will explore the egg as a basic ingredient.
Please note that the workshop will be held in French.
