Veneto Exotico

For Fabrica

What does exotic mean? What is exotic food? Is food that is exotic to one person or culture necessarily exotic to another? Pizza used to be considered exotic in America – when did it become ‘ordinary’? How do we change food when we take it out of its ‘native habitat’ or how do we change food when we contaminate it with notions of ‘exotic’ or ‘strange’? How is the regional culinary culture affected?

Many questions and an attempt to create edgy and powerful answers in a two day design workshop session at Fabrica.
