The Whitworth is ‘Becoming CLIMAVORE’ as part of a collaboration with Turner Prize 2021 nominated Cooking Sections. This long-term project is changing the food offering across cultural institutions with dishes using ingredients that address the climate emergency.

The Whitworth is embarking on a new partnership with Cooking Sections Daniel Fernández Pascual & Alon Schwabe as part of the duo’s Turner Prize exhibition. The collective will support a long-term process to help transform the food offered at cultural institutions across the UK into a menu that addresses the climate emergency.
The first step in Becoming CLIMAVORE is to remove farmed salmon from menus. The second step sees Cooking Sections work to create new CLIMAVORE dishes in collaboration with the Whitworth’s café using filter-feeders and regenerative coastal ingredients that have a positive effect on marine ecology and proactively respond to the ecological challenges along the UK shore.
The new food items included in the project are a CLIMAVORE Tidal Wrap and a CLIMAVORE Grain Salad, available to purchase now.  Becoming CLIMAVORE postcards will be available on-site: when put together, the 12 individual postcards make a poster edition of part of the Cooking Sections’ Turner Prize installation.
