Made to Share

Explore our community of flavours

Food is key to our survival. But it also helps us thrive. This past year, the process of cooking and baking provided much-needed comfort and connection. Creating food let us grieve, celebrate, love, support, mend, discover, heal and remember. We shared meaning, experience, belonging, joy, growth and kindness with others. Food brought friends, family and cultures together.

The Made to Share online recipe collection builds on 2020’s newfound respect for home cooking by celebrating the importance of homemade food in our community. The project taps into the traditions and sustainable food practices of our region's rich cultural diversity. Made to Share examines relationships between memory, history, culture, religion and food. It reveals what, how and why everyday people are cooking in our local neighbourhoods.

Made to Share showcases a series of easy yet inspiring family recipes. These recipes have been handed down through generations to the people who carry them in their hearts and will now share them with us. They represent the very best of regional food from around the world, made right here in our community.

So, get ready to jump right in and start exploring a new world of flavours from your kitchen. Because if you’re going to eat, you might as well make something delicious!
