Secret Dishes From Around the World 3

Secret Dishes From Around The World was a collaborative process of creating a fundraising cookbook, along with 19 other arts organisations and charities in the UK.  This would be the third book in the trilogy containing commissioned artworks that complement the wide range of cuisines and celebrate the diversity of food, art and community.  All proceeds support Bounceback Foods, a non-profit social enterprise and the scaled up fight tackling food poverty nationwide.

We commissioned illustrator Andrew Petrouis to work with our Creative Arts & Photography learners to create artwork for the German section of the cookbook.  Andrew took these ideas and interwove them with textile links from Krefeld in Germany, as it is twinned with Leicester and combined them with an illustration of Alice Hawkins, Leicester’s prominent suffragette.  Because of this incredible concept we were able to welcome Peter – Alice Hawkins great-grandson and Fred the Chairman from City of Leicester European Twinning Association (CLETA) as well as other members to the book launch event.

You still have the amazing opportunity to buy the cookbook here and you can find out all about the project on the Podcast with Pedestrian’s Selena and illustrator Andrew.
