A celebration of food grown, harvested, and hunted where it is consumed. Taking as an example a small Swiss town South of the Alps, Km 0 reclaims present day alternatives to industrial food production. It is an invitation to reconsider how much we know about the origins of what we eat, and an invitation to return towards small-scale local food production and consumption, and to recognise and celebrate the abundance and beauty nature has to offer. Conceived as a book in two chapters, the project explores gastronomical traditions in the Alpine region, while acknowledging global influences in a changing climate.
Chapter 1 looks at the vegetables that are grown in private gardens and family allotments, edible wild plants, herbs and fruits. Chapter 2 is dedicated to produce from animal origin, including hunting, fishing and traditional methods of small-scale animal breeding.
Chapter 1: MADRE TERRA
Chapter 2: CARNE VIVA
