Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space is excited to present Feed Me a Story, an on-going social engagement project dedicated to documenting the gastronomic experiences of residents living in historical communities. The latest installment is a video presentation of recipes, stories and memories collected from customers and vendors located inside the Essex Street Market. Consisting of more than twenty personal stories, the documentary-style video cookbook succinctly captures the diversity of experience and change of both the market and LES community residents. Formatted inside a former market stall, Feed Me a Story situates itself as a vendor that offers the viewer a wide-range of personal histories of food, which together form an intimate and authentic articulation of the dynamic development of the LES.
