Journeying through eggplant dishes in Montreal's restaurant scene: Unveiling authenticity and cultural ownership
BLUE Fellow
Winter
2023

Background

As a knowledge omnivore, I enjoy the multi-dimensional way of understanding the world. This year, I am doing a few different projects on the theme of diaspora. In my project at B21, I will focus on eggplant, and particularly eggplant dishes in ethnic food restaurants in Montreal using anthropological methods, in which I will explore questions such as what authenticity is, who owns the authenticity, and how memory plays a role in food-making. Ok, now it's time to dip in!
