Respect through service

Yesterday I wrote a little bit about how cooking can transform relationships, based on our experience at the Indigenous Hospitality House. One thing I didn’t mention in that post is the idea that when we are cooking for someone, we are offering them respect by saying that they are worthy of our service. Also, by serving everyone the same meal whether they are Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander or Colonist, we are demonstrating equal respect for everyone. This can be significant for guests who aren’t accustomed to being respected by Colonists.
