¡dpm! does is the work of Clara Inés Schuhmacher, with input & support from Dan Edinberg. Originally an outlet for tinkerings around our Brooklyn-based fledgling food project, empanadas ¡dpm!, it’s now an all out exploration of what we eat (and why), the makers who have come before us, and the experiences — both culinary and artistic — that are yet to come.
Clara is an artist, writer and multimedia producer based in Brooklyn, NY. She was born in Italy to Argentinean parents, and owes much of her love of food to this happy coincidence. She first learned to cook sitting on a stool in her abuela’s kitchen on Calle Tejeda in Córdoba, Argentina, and from there it was a short step to writing, curating and hosting esoteric dinner parties. She profiles mom’n'pop markets in the five boroughs for Serious Eats, and creates multimedia stories about urban farming and cooking-by-color for Organic Gardening. When she’s not cooking, or eating, or writing (about cooking and eating), she makes time-based art with her collective vvitalny, and serves as the Director of
Operations for the Make Music New York Festival.
Here we are, as empanadas ¡dpm!, chatting with Mo Rocca on food(ography) back in 2010!
And for your amusement, a little song and dance…about empanadas.
