The fourth training as part of the Trainings for the Not-Yet is with Chloë Bass, and takes place from 9-13 October 2019.  This training focuses on cooking, recipe writing, storytelling, dialogue, translation, language-learning and language-teaching.


Each Step Yields Depth is a language-, translation-, and memory workshop based in the kitchen. The training invites participants to share words about food, recipes, cooking techniques, and kitchen stories from their culture, either as they live it in the present day, or as they remember it in the past. “As a tentative learner of foreign languages,” says Chloë Bass, “I often learn food words before any others, and retain these words longer, even if I’m not using the language in my daily life. I’m hoping we can get to know each other more deeply by starting with the foods we cook, the way we cook them, and the stories they evoke.” In this training, participants are trained in recipe writing, cooking techniques, food-related words, and gathering memories around a communal meal or the shared tasks of cooking, as well as in deep listening techniques. Participants also train the trainer in these skills.
