Based on the idiom 'you are what you eat', this thesis creates a thematic dining experience that guides the invited guest through the food's production process. The first iteration of this concept is a meal about chicken. Each course of this meal references various stages of an industrialized farm-chicken's life. Plates and serving utensils take the form of feeders and other iconic farm tools inorder to allow the diner to reflect on the act of eating, the things they are consuming and the associated costs of our industrialized food production.
