Client: Para Site Gallery

The Unappropriated Recipes is an unorthodox cookbook, celebrating Hong Kong with 80 contributing artists, curators, and collaborators. The book is a collection of personal recipes, each specific to each contributors’ experience of Hong Kong through ingredients, real or imagined. Each page was created to reflect the varying submissions, highlighting Hong Kong’s diverse cusine & culture. 

Artists were invited by the Para Site to partake in the project with an postcard that they could send their recipe on the back of. The invitation was created to mimic a cake box.

The book was Para Site’s first crowdfunded publication and edited by Olivia Chow
