The Survival Japanese Cooking project derives from my art practice in sculpture. Local food and kitchen equipment are used as material to explore the possibility of culinary cultural crossover. The project was executed while staying at RAUMARS A-i-R in Rauma, Finland. The Citymarket is a local store selling everything from groceries to hardwares. It is like Zellars or Wallmart. They publish monthly flyers for groceries on specials along with recipes in using those products in promotion. I happen to notice that in the October issue, two full pages were dedicated to Japanese cooking. I do not read any Finnish so I decided that I asked a Finnish person I got to become friends with to follow these recipes.
