002 | 食物与乡愁 Finding Home Through Food

【聊了什么】

食物是最公共也是最私密的事情,如果你的生活比较规律,一天会需要至少做出三个关于跟吃有关的决定,是外卖还是堂食奶茶还是咖咖啡,吃肉还是素食,中餐还是日料,火锅还是早茶,每一个决定都牵起,无数个关于商业社会、关于劳动者、关于人口流动、关于环保、关于文化的话题,在过去的几年里,我们都出于各种各样的原因成为了流散的异乡人,疫情开始之后,这种绵长的甘肠寸断的乡愁又成为了我们人生的底色。

所以对于异乡人来说,厨房突然重新成为了治愈我们的地方。像小高姐、老饭骨、慢食、慢语等成为了连接新一代流散群体的文本,在厨房里还原甚至提升了记忆里面的味道,成了很多人的疗愈体验。吃,既是一个政治的商业的文化的话题,也是一个温情的私密的心照不宣的体验。所以这期节目我们聚齐了七个女的一起来聊吃在我们生活中扮演的角色。

Food is both an utterly public and intimate matter. Every decision you make around food is related to infinitely more topics: commercialism, labor, population mobility, sustainability, culture & history, and more. During the past two years of the pandemic, the sprawling diaspora that we are a part of has been forced to face their yearning for home heads on.

So we turn to the kitchen to heal our homesickness and cravings for hometown food, and gathered seven women here today to chat about food, the role it plays in our lives, and how it relates to our personal and cultural identities.
