Eat & Arts Fest

The Team

We may just be three right now, but we hope that in the coming months we will be able to create a space for you to join us! So, keep an eye out on our socials because there is exciting news on the way

A supper club bringing creatives together…

In certain ways, lockdown has stifled us, but in others it has allowed us to see the world in a new light. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and the absence of being able to make art in person with our communities has only made us more invested in our own creativity! Inspiration is all about connectivity and creating environments for that connectivity to thrive is incredibly important during these times.
So, we created Eat & Arts Festival! Eat & Arts Fest is a collaborative project that brings people together from all different artistic backgrounds: from painters and musicians to (like us) obsessed foodies! In this short little recorded event (filmed between lockdowns) we got together: Cooking New Stories founder, Daniela Paiva, abstract artist and performer, Cara Mathia Brennan and Brazilian DJ AmarAll to learn from each other, share, connect and fill a little of the void we’ve felt throughout our isolation. We heard the music, smelled the food and saw and felt the art!

Daniela Paiva

Founder of Cooking New Stories

My vision for Cooking New Stories started at my dinner table, surrounded by my friends and family, indulging in our culinary creations and sharing stories of our love for art, travel and most importantly, taste. I have always passionately believed that food has the ability to connect people from all walks of life and different backgrounds, and here in my little slice of the foodie internet, we try to do just that! I am very excited to be partnering with Cara and AmarAll to create Eat & Arts Festival!
