Make a Meal
Food is our common ground, a universal experience. –James Beard
Six days a week, seven very hungry artists and interns will need dinners prepared and delivered to their Premiere Suites “home away from home,” near the Halifax waterfront sculpture site. If you have a culinary flair or down-home cooking skills, this is the job for you.
To access the Sculpture Nova Scotia’s online meal-site Take Them A Meal, go to “FIND”, the recipient is Nova Scotia and the password is 1401.
We could really use your help! Every volunteer adds a little something to make it a fantastic experience. We call this approach “Stone Soup”. Let’s make sure we deliver an experience that our international and local artists will appreciate and remember!
Some travelers come to a village, carrying nothing more than an empty cooking pot. Upon their arrival, the villagers are unwilling to share any of their food stores with the hungry travelers. Then the travelers go to a stream and fill the pot with water, drop a large stone in it, and place it over a fire. One of the villagers becomes curious and asks what they are doing. The travelers answer that they are making “stone soup”, which tastes wonderful, although it still needs a little bit of garnish to improve the flavour, which they are missing. The villager does not mind parting with a few carrots to help them out, so that gets added to the soup. Another villager walks by, inquiring about the pot, and the travelers again mention their stone soup which has not reached its full potential yet. The villager hands them a little bit of seasoning to help them out. More and more villagers walk by, each adding another ingredient. Finally, a delicious and nourishing pot of soup is enjoyed by all.
