A project BY artist Marina Zurkow and chef duo Hank and Bean.

WE ARE A COLLECTIVE OF ARTISTS, CHEFS, AND RESEARCHERS SEEKING out
new ways to metabolize CLIMATE DISRUPTION and CULTIVATE AGILITY.
We create food + art experiences that intimately connect people to climate change.

WITH regional FOCUSES, we look for new, novel, or ignored food opportunities
AND WORK at a variety of scales— INCLUDING snacks, picnics, AND dinners.
