The Empire Remains is a long-term project by Cooking Sections that explores the imaginaries that were set up by the British Empire to promote food trade between home and overseas territories. The project attests how global desire, geopolitics, power and food networks have evolved from the beginning of the 20th century until today. In order to understand the making of natures and economic landscapes, such as the “tropical” or the “middle east”, it traces rum, sugar, tobacco, chocolate, “exotic” fruits, and spices throughout the world.
