    Synopsis

    Bowls is about the food we love and how it connects us to who we are. We want to explore the connectivity between traditional ethnic food and culture in a North American context. Calgary is known for it's wide variety of diverse food culture. We want to dig deeper into the stories found in this culture. Through the stories of chefs and owners of Chinese restaraunts we want to find out who they are, where they’re from and why they do what they do. Whether it's an immigrant family that invented Ginger Beef, traditional Chinese cuisine readily available to the new immigrant population, or modern chefs taking cues from classic Chinese cooking. These make up the fabric of a diverse ethnocentric food culture in a city like Calgary. Tradition. Culture. Legacy.
