Normally, when cooking and following instructions, we stick to a written recipe. This is so we get everything right and are sure that what we end up with and what is being described will be the same thing.
My plan is to take away the certainty of cooking and follow an already-fictional image to begin with. To make a thing that appears to be present but possibly could have never even existed.
The idea is to make this happen using edible materials (even if the participant decides not to make it yummy).
- find a painting of food
- bring some cooking materials with you that you already have
- let's go shopping together for additional things we need
- cook following the image
