Bring a plate!

This is a call out for any recipes connected to the Waterside Workers Union / Vitalstatistix Theatre building and its past and present inhabitants… many of whom lived in Port Adelaide.

Send your stories, references and recipes in and they will be added to the projections appearing during the Cutaway project at Vitalstatistix.

What did they eat?

> What did WWU members eat at their meets?
> What did wharfies eat for their lunch?
> what do Born on Monday have for their treats?
> what did PVI collective eat at brunch?

> What have Portonians eaten through the past?
> What was made of Harts Mill Flour?
> What food with which migrants might break their fast?
> What’s hot and you’d eat while yelling “Port Power”?

> Recipes are needed, we call out to get them..
> However related to Waterside it may be,
> Dig out your memory or through your collection,
> and send that recipe or idea to me.
