The flavours and aromas of our favourite dishes wind their way through the deepest recesses of our being, and even the thought of a particular meal can transport us back to a pivotal moment. After sell-out seasons at Sydney Festival, Asia TOPA and Oz Asia Festival, Double Delicious sees storyteller cooks share secrets behind the dishes that proved significant in their lives. Kim Chi master Heather Jeong recalls meeting her father for the first time at the age of 9. Dancer-choreographer Raghav Handa grapples with the loss of ritual, and how it fits into his contemporary life in Australia. Performer Valerie Berry recalls the shock of moving, as a child, from bustling Manila to outback Ceduna. Writer Benjamin Law tells the hilarious story of growing up in the shadow of the Big Pineapple. And writer and comedian Jennifer Wong recounts the many kinds of sweetness that nourish and heal.

This truly is a show that tantalises all the senses. Audiences will have the unique opportunity to taste the story. Bitter and sweet, each story culminates in an authentic recreation of the storyteller’s chosen dish.

Tickets are essential and are available here
