Chán馋 is a bilingual magazine dedicated to the UK Sinophone communities. Through thirteen contributions by seventeen UK-based writers and artists who self-identify as Sinophone diaspora, the first issue of Chán seeks to explore the interconnections between self and collectivity through food – essays, illustrations, images, poetries that construct lines of difference weaved together by memories of food. Instead of identifying as a bilingual publication, we would like to situate ourselves between languages – allowing space for mistranslation, the untranslatable, the incomprehensible, etc. In a time of uncertainties, we are all craving for food and what it signifies – care, support, intimacy and home.
