Perogie, spelled in so many different ways, was one food that expanded itself into not only a dining experience, but an experience of family, of tradition, and at points, a helping held from the moments the life brings.

Materialization. Storytelling. Knowledge sharing. Often our process as child culture designers is to immerse ourselves in the concept of play, and to infuse play-based approach in our practice.

For this examination, I worked with the creation of food with my daughter and documented it as a way to continue the teachings; in technique and storytelling.
