About the book
From Greek broth to grief and loss, fishwives to folklore, pancakes to politics, Gaza to Glasgow. Tomorrow’s Kitchen: A Graphic Novel Cookbook is a unique collection of stories and recipes from novelists, food writers, chefs, playwrights and activists from all over the world.
Interpreted into drawings by BAFTA-nominated illustrator Shuangshuang Hao, Tomorrow’s Kitchen invites you to the table to taste some flavours of today’s world and to think about how we might cook things up differently in tomorrow’s.
It’s the first time we’ve done a book like this. And as keen KP followers will know, we’ve always been huge fans of the way illustrations bring a different sort of life to food writing, so we leapt at the chance to collaborate with the wonderful Küche to bring Tomorrow’s Kitchen to life.
Tomorrow’s Kitchen has been put together as the Covid-19 pandemic has been sweeping the world. Never before have we been so conscious of how interlinked we all are, how we are vulnerable to the same problems, alert to the same challenges, no matter how different our circumstances or culture. Deborah May (editor) was locked down in New Zealand, Shaungshaung Hao (illustrator) in China, and Kitchen Press in Scotland. The contributors come from Gaza, Colonsay, Uganda. And it was eerie to think of a similar silence creeping over them all.
Things are slowly getting back on track, but it seemed like a good time to use Kickstarter rather than traditional pr to help this lovely project reach its audience. It was amazing to watch as the project smashed its target, so thanks to all those inquisitive and generous souls who bought into it. And even though the campaign is finished, you can still pre-order the book through us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
