  • This Project accentuates the idea of “medifood” (food and medicine) and so-called energy-giving food, delving into the magical powers of certain culinary recipes, the practices of natural medicine and the properties of drugs and home remedies used in the different gastronomic cultures.

    From the current products given to us by the world of sport to the recipes based on reptiles and mushrooms of the ancient Chinese civilization, food has always sought for those unthinkable potions and miraculous substances which alter the perception and increase the vigour of their recipients. Power Food explores those hypertrophied products and shows their significance and impact in the order of factual powers, in the confines of the economy, publicity and the beliefs and superstitions which underlie them.

    The project is completed by the publication of the “POWER FOOD LEXIcom”, a dictionary-like register-memory which articulates the concept of Food Cultura.
