An ethnographic collection of images, ingredients and stories from the kitchens of Marrickville and Kos, Greece. Food is a culturally rich and portable form of identity that transcends geographic boundaries through the spread of people and ideas. Cuisine evolves through travelling across borders, absorbing the local and the present, while simultaneously channelling the past and tradition. Community Kouzina is an ethnographic insight into the kitchens and gardens of Marrickville and its sister city Kos. A Marrickville Council Sister Cities and International Exchange supported program. A joint exhibition with Settlement Services International.
