Bowls Around Town Eugene: A World of Local Stories about Food

Mar 27, 2017

International students from the UO cook up Chinese Tibetan Fusion Beef Rice, as part of "Bowls Around Town: Eugene, OR."

In conjunction with the exhibition Hungry Planet: What the World Eats, the UO Museum of Natural and Cultural History presents “Bowls Around Town: Eugene, OR” in which people can check out a handmade ceramic bowl from artist Michael J. Strand, along with a digital camera. 

They are then asked to cook a significant family recipe to place in the bowl, document the process via the camera, and write about the recipe and its meaning. Folklorist Lyle Murphy speaks with KLCC's Eric Alan about the project.
