For the project Cookbook, the artists and local residents gathered together to share favorite recipes and create a cookbook for their apartment complex. The project culminated in a big shared dinner with dishes made according to the participants’ favorite recipes.


Recipes from the cookbook were also available on a city bulletin board.
