0G1A5409 - James Ireland

Join James Ireland as they cook a vegan version of smoked salmon, using the ingredients to have a conversation about food history and human impact on the environment.

This isn’t the first ecological catastrophe we’ve created. 10,000 years ago, human societies across the world changed from hunter-gathering to agricultural lifestyles. We’d hunted our food off the face of the earth. James says we’re making another catastrophe now.

Join us for a look at our current practices of food consumption, one element of unsustainable modern life. Without changing our behaviour and our diets in the past, we wouldn’t be here — so what can we learn from that now? This work centres on a plant-based (vegan) recipe, but that’s just one part of the conversation.

Please note this show contains optional food consumption. Key allergens: gluten, soy, garlic, citrus (lemon). Cooking the Vegan Salmon of Knowledge premiered at Dublin Fringe Festival where it was the winner of the Axis Green Arts Award.
