Next EventPreview Vol 04: Field Materials
'Preview' is a series of meals between California and Japan featuring a variety of chefs, food producers, and artists who are well versed in food, where people come together to test and create new ways of gathering, cooking, and eating. For Vol 04 we are partnering with the Aoyama Bread Festival at the Tokyo Farmer's Market and will also be releasing our next print edition, 'Field Materials' on the occasion.

Field Materials aims to reframe the idea of a ‘field guide’ in order to allow us to think differently about ‘the field’ and about ‘materials’. The makers of a field guide undergo multi-faceted deeper exploration of what they already know, do not know, will never know, and how they got to where they are.
