Serve it Forth! – Eat like a King (in a council house)
Serve it Forth! – Eat like a King (in a council house) is an ongoing project in which I aim to unravel the vague recipes from England’s oldest cookbook, The Forme of Cury, and curate it into a serialized zine. Rather than recreate each recipe exactly, I use my kitchen experience to make new recipes, incorporating the memories and impressions of food I have gained over my life, to tell my story with food, adding my own small chapter to a story that is 631 years in the making. In turn I create vivid, rich photographs from each dish and its ingredients, using a colour palette reminiscent of the lurid technicolor world of 1950’s cinematic depictions of the Plantagenet Kings, adding a fantasy element to this form of escapism.
