I live on the Merri Creek, in the inner northern suburbs of the city of Melbourne. Most days I cross the creek, or at least glimpse its waters from afar. I look for changes in the water level, in the clarity, in the speed of the flow. One day the water is high and muddy from recent heavy rains; within a day or two the level is back to normal, the silt has settled onto the creek floor and the water runs clear. When it’s like that it looks good enough to plunge into. But the rubbish that is strewn along the banks of the Merri – the cans that glint from below the surface, the plastic bags that hang in the low boughs of trees like tattered flags – are a reminder that we are in the city, and that the ways we live our lives in the city mean we sacrifice the ability cool off in this creek on a hot day, or to take a drink when we are thirsty.

2nd of February we gather a group of collaborators, friends and new acquaintances in Kødbyen, Copenhagen, for a night of exploring, conversation and dining. Gitte Holmboe of Bøgedal Bryghus and chef Thomas Randsøe, along with Anne Lunell and Charles Nystrand from Koppi, made sure we ate and drank well. The guest of honor this night was Stéphane Meyer and Lise Kvan, from the Jura region of France and Paris respectively.

This fall a truly remarkable collaboration was started within the realm of conscious food production and consumption. The innovation project TRIPPEL, a program for social intervention and green growth, gathers roughly 15 private, public and volunteer key players from TINE, Lerøy and Nordic Choice Hotels, in addition to SiO Foodservice amongst others. The aim is to research new valuable solutions for sustainable food.

Food Studio is where good food meets good ideas. Where food is more than just something you eat. A place where food becomes conceptualized through physical and mental experiments. A memory. An experience. An object of theory. Art. Politics. Social interference. Cultural inheritance. An idea. If you know someone special who would enjoy this, you can give them a beautifully wrapped gift card for a Food Studio experience.

About

Philosophy

With good and honest food we mean food that both tastes good, has a positive impact on our health, food that´s responsibly produced, food that´s a result of plants and animals being treated well, and food that inspires us!

Food Studio
— About

Food Studio wishes to change todays food system to a more sustainable network in the near future. 4 times a year, we organise a seasonal workshop and dinner in the natural surroundings of Oslo called Get Away. Other activities range from Get Away collaborations with other likeminded individuals and projects all over the world, to seminars and field trips for larger organisations in Norway to help them make a change.

We believe that learning comes easy with first hand experience. We therefore invite you to pack your backpack and join us for a seasonal workshop and dinner where you are a part of harvesting, foraging and making dinner. We collaborate closely with knowledgeable people ranging from foragers to farmers to challenge the daily way we think about and work with food, and to open up for new ideas and solutions for future food.
