Aunty in Residence
This is really about who gets to access the "residency" space. What does it even mean to be in residence and who is it for?
This will soon become a digital archive and database of aunties sharing recipes and stories across a range of cultures, food styles and influences.
This is equally about the joy of cooking and the women who love feeding as an act of care and passing down generational recipes and stories. The role of publishing this all and creating content then becomes a sort of open-source.
As part of Aunty in Residence, my mother, Gina Aunty and I have invited women in our family & friends to become online residents and hosts. Every fortnight the page will call a new aunty into the virtual kitchen to share a recipe in video form alongside a written interview about themselves.
