What a story! Culture Kitchen at Merchant City Festival

Food For Thought: The Art of Preparation, Participation and Performance
Culture Kitchen, a Hidden Gardens’ creative project to stimulate and inspire new ways of thinking about Scotland’s food, presented a packed programme of activity in Glasgow’s Merchant City to get taste buds buzzing and creative juices flowing.
Food Tells a Story at Café Cossachok
For one night only, during Merchant City Festival, 12 Glasgow women took charge of the kitchen to serve up food their mothers and grandmothers taught them to make. Theatre artist Adura Onashile worked with The Hidden Gardens Cultural Cookery Group to create this unique communal dining experience – part performance, part installation, part celebration.

Glasgow Harvest at Greyfriars Garden
Cooked up by arts charity NVA, Glasgow Harvest was a colourful celebration of local food. People from far and wide joined us for the opening of Greyfriars Garden, the Merchant City’s new community growing space with SAGE. There, they found pop-up cooking stalls, growing workshops, the Fife Diet Seed Truck, and live music from Yuptae. Produce was swapped and bartered at our home-grown exchange market This for That, an international collaboration between artists Alex Wilde and Annechien Meier commissioned by The Hidden Gardens for the Merchant City Festival.
