Ridley’s
Recipes for Food & Architecture

Ridley’s was a temporary restaurant built on a 5m by 5m concrete square overlooking the traders of Ridley Road Market. Every meal served at Ridley’s was made using only produce from the market. Visitors to the restaurant were sent out to the market to source ingredients, becoming part of the restaurant’s supply chain. The book is a ‘how to of sorts’, each chapter takes the readers from the general (the red pages) to the specifics of the project (the white pages). At the back of the book is a selection of recipes of the meals cooked at Ridley’s titled Meals for Twenty.

I see the promised land

Half way in between an illustrated book and a graphic novel, the book wants to marry the story of Martin Luther King Jr as narrated by African-American writer Arthur Flower, to the scrolls illustrated by Manu Chitrakar, artist from the Bengal region of India, making art according to the style and colour palette of the Patua tradition.
