A two-day lunch service as part of the MA Fine Art Dress Rehearsal Shows: Before The Applause. 

In this, I collaborated with my mom (Gina Aunty) and the fantastic Chelsea Canteen Team to curate a special menu, using my mom's recipes, which the chefs replicated. 

Chilli Paneer!

Veg Pulao!

The menu featured a selection of dishes my mom describes as our ‘ghar ka khana’ or 'home food', which were shared over lunch with students and staff across Chelsea campus.

Through this lunch service, I aimed to explore ways food can simultaneously foster ideas of community whilst serving as a form of resistance within the institutional setting.
