I am Parel (1997, Brussels) I aim to raise questions and create food for thought. Take a seat and get an insight into my world.

What do I bring to the table?

 

My calling is to bring people together with food. Some might call this food design, but I don’t think that quite covers it.

​I am the host in my projects, my work is driven by social interaction, this is oftentimes mediated by food but this is a means to an end. Food is my perfect medium for social interaction. 

By inviting people to join me in these experiences I challenge established norms in a collective manner. Transformation design functions as the framework through which I explore and create new boundaries for myself as an artist in our contemporary society.

 

There are still more courses to come and flavors to be discovered and you are welcome to join me in this journey.
