A La Mesa
A selection of Comida Casera participatory projects, installations, and workshops.
Comida Casera is multigenerational project bringing together participants to share food and stories honoring the people, places, and dishes that form their connection to home. Created in 2016 by Evelyn Rydz, the project began as a way to bring together a wide range of women from different fields, neighborhoods, generations, and backgrounds to share stories and food inspired by a woman - from mother, mentor to friend - who gives them the sense of home and belonging. Since 2016, the project has expanded from backyards to libraries, community centers, museums, universities, and to online exchanges open to all.
