Mi Casa Es Tu Casa
Mi Casa Es Tu Casa is welcoming refugees, immigrants, other newcomers and locals alike to new tastes, as the diaspora space is a site, where the native is as much a diasporian as the diasporian is the native.
A Human Metropolis Food is a storyteller. Food connects us. Food is both a symbol of home as it is a symbol of something foreign. Food gives us a sense of community, and over time these communities shape our cities, where everyone becomes the very essence of the fabric of the city.
With the arrivals of newcomers, any local cuisine is injected with a healthy dose of new flavours, curiosity and cultural understandings, and by sweetening this meeting with food is what makes us human and keeps us all alive.
How we perceive food is also, how we perceive culture. By introducing ‘the exotic’ to each other, the flavours and traditions that we attach to home, newcomers and locals alike, is get to a taste and smell the respective local cuisine and community of one another.
