Taste of Cuisine

Submissions Open

September 15, 2021 -  October 31, 2021

Releasing in November-December 2021

Eating and creating are human impulses that will always exist. For their part, the use of culinary activities as a conceptual expression has burst over time as more and more artists use these activities as a recurring theme, muse, and message in their work.  As a vital function, the creative cuisine of today seeks to heighten the senses and many of us relate our traditional cooking skills to family recipes that embody a sense of nostalgia, family, and belonging to a close community. In this issue, we will take a bite out of the culinary arts and indulge in our unique experiences that nourish the soul.
