Dish on Pearl Street

DISH, 2016-present

Dish invites participants to learn their favorite homemade dishes made by their elders by interviewing them and documenting the process. When Lung’s grandmother passed away a few years ago, Lung’s cousin lamented during his eulogy how he would never be able to taste his favorite dish by grandma again, and Lung lamented never learning the dish from her. In Dish, participants interview, learn from, and video document their elders making these dishes. Dish, an on going project, not only allows the participant to learn these homemade dishes but also help strengthen the bond between generations.
