In my work as a visual education teacher, I often look for ways in which pupils can express themselves through art and share this with a classmate or group. An experience at a school camp made me interested in the interactions between pupils, their learning environment and food, or the act of eating. This event included a series of creative elements such as devising a recipe and preparing and presenting a dish. The research question this led to was: How could these interactions be incorporated into an art class? What do you need to design a performative meal with a group? How can engaging with food contribute to an artistic programme in secondary education and promote connections between the context in the classroom and outside of it?
