Cuisine Communiqué investigated how food combinations might embody a message. Twenty two food components like beet-mashed potatoes, boiled peas, and ginger sauce were laid on a dinner table next to a corresponding black sheet of paper. Nineteen participants tasted each component and wrote down free-associated-taste-response words. After the word lists were posted on the walls. Each participant drew the name of someone in the room. They would then write a phrase to this name using the words posted on the walls. These phrases were then given to me and my collaborator, Travis Clark. We would then assemble a dish together, corresponding the words with a food component. The finished dish would be given to the writer who then served the dish to the drawn name.
