Celebrating The Grazing Table
words & photography by Stella Pereira
'A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy?'
There are flavours and textures and the meeting of cultures through their kitchens. There are also bonds to be made and stories to be shared. There are journeys to be uncovered and conversations to be unraveled. There is comfort in the company of others. Joy in their laughter.
Tables are communities coming together in one room. From the farmer who's passionate about his produce, to the craftsman who has spent a lifetime perfecting his skill. Or the artisan, who rises when most of us lay. A table connects you to the person that stands beside you, and to those that stand from a distance.
