G’day and welcome to this presentation on ‘Recipes for Life’! Building upon other collective narrative methodologies (Tree of Life, Team of Life, Kite of Life), Natale shares here a way of working based on food metaphors involving healthy products you can find at Adelaide vending machines.
Recipes for life is a narrative approach to telling our experiences and stories through the metaphor of a recipe. It involves exploring memories, connections, histories and journeys through food.
This is just a ‘taste’ of ‘Recipes for Life’. To learn more, you might like to read Natale’s paper that is to be published next week (see below).
