Traditional Recipe Sharing Project


This project was dedicated to preserving traditional recipes from local families.

 The everyday homemade items lining our dinner tables may in fact be surprising delicacies to others. How could we share those recipes with the public? We wanted to commit those recipes to collective memory and let more people try them. We approached local families to have them share their most closely-guarded recipes with us.

 We then worked with chefs at the Kanazawa Institute of Food Tech & Art to create a cafe with those items on the menu and have visitors at the Wakuwaku Festival taste them for themselves.
