This unusual cookbook, takes a closer look at the local cuisine of Central and Eastern Europe and takes the reader on a unique sentimental journey pleasing to the palate. The book, 'Kitchen Conversations Cookbook: Homey Recipes from Artists' by Patrycja Rozwora and published by Contemporary Lynx Publishing, is a collection of recipes for tasty dishes that can be easily and quickly prepared in one's own kitchen. The cookbook will inspire you with recipes from among others Georgian, Ukrainian, Qazaq or Romanian cuisine and many others home-made meals. They were gathered on Kitchen Conversations podcast between June 2020 and November 2021 from seventeen artists representing different post-Soviet regions. Through the recipes you will find out about the artists practice and their reflections on contemporary Eastern Europe. At the same time, the publication pays tribute to the author's grandmother, Alicja, whose notebooks of cooking tips and recipes inspired the project. Alicja's archive collection of recipes and newspaper cuttings about housekeeping form the heart of the publication. The recipes are accompanied by visuals created by Ukrainian photographer Alex Blanco, Romanian photographer Cristiana Malcica and Georgian visual artist Sophia Tabatadze. This contemporary cookbook functions also as an artbook, with specially folded pages and thoroughly chosen paper - that all reflect on the history of Eastern European, its cuisine and arts.
