Value and Waste
One harvest turns out better than the other. Even so, if nature delivers more than man calculated, the food market is not evenly flexible, and value doesn't adhere to nature's laws. What is the value of our food, and where does the value go? This Saturday, the cabbage is stored in Mediamatic's barn as an edible installation waiting for hungry people.
What is your favourite cabbage recipe? Why do Americans call coleslaw coleslaw? Why do babies come from cabbage patches? Did you know that cabbage is often used as a stomach stretcher and for the fat melting cabbage-only diet? Across the globe, people have survived on cabbage in many different ways. Keep up with our growing Cabbage Blogs to learn about the first female-made film, cabbage rolls, cabbage steak, primordial sauerkraut and many more!
