November 6, 2020 “Food and Storytelling”
Some readings, art, music, and other resources. These are not required readings. They have been shared with us by our guests, or are things we have looked up after an interview for further information or just because we were curious.
We share these materials with you for interest and pleasure’s sake.
If you missed this week’s class, you can listen to it here:
Here is a video that was shared by Alexis from Stump Kitchen, it is amazing! You should watch it.
Alexis also shared this recipe, from the above video, with us. Thank you Alexis!

Kyla Pascal spoke to us about her cooking events around Edmonton that showcased the food and stories being created by local chefs whose voices are underrepresented in an industry that continues to highlight white, cis-men. She mentions several movements across place and time that have inspired her work with Nowhere Kitchen. Here are some articles providing some more information on the Nowhere Club: https://www.npr.org/2005/03/04/4509998/the-club-from-nowhere-cooking-for-civil-rights#:~:text=In%20the%201950s%2C%20a%20group,fired%20for%20her%20organizing%20efforts and https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/31/obituaries/georgia-gilmore-overlooked.html
Kyla also mentioned this article, “We Have Stories: Five generations of Indigenous women in water“.
Here are a list of local grocers Kyla recommends and a map:
-WestGate Halal Meat & Deli
-Marvellous Tropical Food Market
-Hong Kong Bakery
-Spice Centre (East & West Indian Groceries)
-Taha’s Halal Meat & Food
-Habesha African Market
And then there is this great poster she passed along of a Nowhere Kitchen event.
