The treasured family recipes of the Cairns Chinese Community have been revealed through video and photographs in the exhibition Secret Recipes. Working with members of the Cairns and District Chinese Association Incorporated (CADCAI), renowned photographer Glen O’Malley and ethnographic videographer Daniela Vavrova have captured the stories of this community, as they prepare symbolic culinary delights to celebrate Chinese New Year. The inevitable adaptation, crosspollination, and refinement of these dishes speaks to the journey’s these recipes have made to become an integral part of family, friendship, and community in contemporary Australian society.
