Resist like Woods: Forest Kitchen

We invite you to the forest cuisine of the WOODs symposium.

31.07.2020 —02.08.2020
Forest and meadow plot between the villages of Hnátnice and Písečná, Orlické Mountains

This time the forest kitchen has fixed its attention on the visual aspect of the meals to be served, which is based on sketched designs. The forest kitchen works with produce from ecological farming, above all from local sources, and integrates ingredients from the surrounding environment. The conception was prepared by Zuzana Blochová and David Fesl for the summer symposium Resist Like Woods organized by the WOODS – Community for Cultivation, Theory and Art.

Thanks to Julie Daňhelová, Veronika Holcová, Dita Lamačová, Pavlína Verbíková and all who contributed to the preparation and cooking of the meals.
