The Cookbook Project, comprised of 13 handmade artist books, each designed to encourage personal introspection and at the same time create connection to a community. For me, they solidify the now, memorialize the past, and set the table for the future. Each volume opens with one of my recipes and my story of the memory. I then deliver each book to project participants who is asked in turn to add a recipe and the story of that memory. I ask that each recipe added contain one ingredient from the preceding recipe if possible. I facilitate the continuation of each book's journey. Circulation begins in late 2017 continuing for approximately 1 year.
