FEAST

Details

The Company of Wolves, Director: Neil Jordan (1984)

Details

This whimsical tale was a take on the fairytale Red Riding Hood with wonderful imagery and special effects. The story centres around food, cannibalism and is very surreal.

TRADITION

Details

Chinese dumpling wars

Vinc from our class told us all about the story of his ancient family heritage; after being shunned from their town, where the ingredients essential for making dumplings were kept. After they resettled in a new region, they had to develop a new method for making them with alternate ingredients and this lead to the invention of an early form of Tofu!

Phone stacking

Another recent ritual with regard to meals, with the increased presence of technology in our daily lives, is the custom of 'phone stacking'. Each guest at the meal sets their phone in the centre of the table for the duration of the meal - this increases the social aspect of the experience and removes the distraction of phubbing and looking at your phones. The punishment for the first person looking at their phone is that they either have to pay for the whole meal or a round of drinks!

Tamales

Juliana told us about a food tradition from Columbia, where each Sunday they would have tamales for lunch. They were made by collecting a plantain leaf, filling it with rice and vegetables and sometimes meat.

RITUAL

Details

Ortolan Ritual

Details

"For centuries, a rite of passage for French gourmets was the eating of the Ortolan. These tiny birds—captured alive, force-fed, then drowned in Armagnac—were roasted whole and eaten that way, bones and all, while the diner draped his head with a linen napkin to preserve the precious aromas and, some believe, to hide from God."
