Det Grænseløse Køkken / The Boundless Kitchen

Around the world the process of people gathering to share a meal is a social instinct based on love, mutuality and friendship. A set table means the same in Denmark as anywhere else: 'Værsgo'!' or 'Please start!' – Welcome to 'Det Grænseløse Køkken', or in English 'The Boundless Kitchen'.

The Boundless Kitchen explores the meal as a social tool that can break down boundaries. A semi-mobile community hall will act as a greenhouse and a food truck - a mobile kitchen approved as a professional kitchen for food production, which means that anyone interested, and who has a food hygiene certificate, may make food for other people in this kitchen.

Temporary – but a long term solution! With The Boundless Kitchen we create a mobile platform that can support part of a city or village that is in a state of transition. The temporary presence of The Boundless Kitchen, and the activities that follow, are a catalyst for the sustainable use of an area in flux, strengthening the process of unity and common cultural experiences during the transition.

Led by restaurateur and entrepreneur, Jakob Vinkler, the project is structured as a social business responding to the Danish immigration law which came into force on 1 July 2016; it will focus on creating meaningful internships for refugees where the food and shared meal are the focal points.

The Boundless Kitchen is a part of European Region of Gastronomy 2017
Presented by Jakob Vinkler, Smag, Aarhus 2017 and OFF TRACK 2017

My role in this unique social project was as a collaborator with project leader Jakob Vinkler from Smag, Ebeltoft. I helped him develop the idea, apply for funding, promote the project and get the project rolling with organizing, communication and practical help. I was active in the process from 2015-2017. I also helped with PR, made the homepage of the project (www.granselos.dk) and did a lot of documentation - these photos and video among others.

Other people that have been a big part of this project along the way is.
Frans van der Woude, Anna Oline Frieboe Laumark, Max Bering, Søren Frieboe, Arej Shakra, Isabella Marschall and Institut for X.

The Boundless Kitchen has gotten a little sister version called "ildstedet" at Institut for X in Aarhus. A homepage is on its way. More to come about this!
