Foodways: Caribbean Flavours with Chef Roger Mooking

The intersection of food with culture and history is understood through the study of “foodways”. Customs of food preparation, production, preservation and presentation are all facets of how we understand regional foodways, and these often inherited traditions reveal much about the creative life of a person and place.  Hosted by the AGO’s Chef Renee Bellefeuillle, Foodways is a new conversation series that brings together chefs to explore  the intersection of culinary practices, memory and art. 

Launching in January of 2022, Foodways: Caribbean Flavours brings together three chefs with ties to the Caribbean and its Diaspora to reflect on their own foodways, inspired by the AGO’s current exhibition of art from the Caribbean and its Diaspora Fragments of Epic Memory. This conversation series will conclude with an in-person dinner at a later date, created by the participating chefs.  

Roger Mooking is a world renowned celebrity chef, restaurateur, Food Network & Cooking Channel host, author and award-winning recording artist.

Roger is best known as the host of grilling and barbecue show "Man Fire Food". He is also the host and co-creator of “Everyday Exotic”, co-host of “Heat Seekersand host of "Man’s Greatest Food".
