Sutukil is the familiar practice of choosing the food you are about to eat and the different ways it can be prepared for you. It’s like when you go to a restaurant and point at a fish in the tank that you’d like to eat.
About the show
Masarap is the Tagalog word for ‘delicious.’ All the activities during this exhibition will channel the origins and complicated sensory manifestations of comfort food.
Why comfort food? In an increasingly troublesome world online and IRL, we have looked to online food delivery, food porn and various forms of self care to seek solace. This space is here to help you step back and examine your relationship with food.
About the artist
Jenn de la Vega went from picky eater to wide-eyed culinary autodidact who buries herself in archaic cookbooks and food science lab reports. On her menus, you'll find a mash-up of her Filipino-American heritage, Spanish tapas, artisanal cheese, and 90's inspired fast-food cuisine. She is mostly known for her Randwiches or "random sandwiches" in Brooklyn, where clients are given no choice in what they order.
Jenn is editor-at-large of Put A Egg On It: Tasty Zine!, creator in residence at Kickstarter, cook in residence at TASTE Cooking, author of Showdown: Comfort Food, Chili & BBQ and the chef behind Randwiches, an award-winning blog, and catering service.
