Good Day Cork marks World Day of Tea & World Day of Cultural Diversity for Dialogue & Development with the release of an audio documentary – ‘Kitchen Stories’.
Our audio documentary ‘Kitchen Stories’ showcases the vibrant food culture in Ireland through the stories and experiences of how people cook and eat in their homes. Each of the featured people have a unique cultural identity and it is through exploring this that the listener discovers how many commonalities there are in the way different nationalities prepare, create and enjoy food.
Kitchen Stories is hosted by food and culture enthusiast Banu Rekha Balaji who is based in Cork. The documentary features four foodie people who have also made Cork their home. The guests include a newly married Indian-Irish couple, a pastry chef who grew up in France, an Australian frontline worker with Italian roots, and a poet from Zimbabwe who lives in Mallow after having lived in a Direct Provision centre.
‘Kitchen Stories’ is produced and published by Good Day Cork. The documentary has been created with support from MamaBear Foods, Ode to Earth & Orla McAndrew Catering. It was edited by Daniel Clancy with music by Justin Grounds.
