In September 1971, Gordon Matta-Clark, together with Carol Gooden set up a restaurant named “FOOD”. In October 2004, inspired by Matta-Clarkand Gooden’s entrepreneurial spirit, Taketo Shimada suggested to Charmaine Wheatley that they host SUNDAY BLUNCH at her studio.
Taketo and Charmaine will make this a regular weekly thing and will collaborate with invited artists to design and cook menus. We hope to invite one guest cook each week who will show off their culinary skill and art. Sunday Blunch begins with Taketo and Charmaine and her roommate, Dan Rushton*.
$6 charge per person should cover the cost of materials to at least help buy raw goods for Sunday Blunches. Your support is needed in building this social arena where our aesthetic, culinary, economical, intellectual and creative needs can be met. Your presence itself is the most important but feel free to donate plates, utensils, cups and cutlery and any kitchen appliances to the blunch cause! We really need a juicer.

* Dan Rushton is a self proclaimed expert pancake maker and a painter who occupies the front end of the Blunching address.
