"Grand Dishes" cookbook 👵🏻 🍝 👵🏽 🥒 👵🏿
Grand Dishes is not a book about being old, it’s a book about what it’s like to have lived.
It’s a cookbook that preserves; an interaction between generations, a sharing of stories most powerfully told through the recipes that have seasoned these grandmothers’ lives.
Grand Dishes dedicates four pages to each grandmother: a portrait, her story, the recipe and an image of the dish. This is not just a compendium of dishes, it’s a selection of stories and techniques that are completely unique to a region, a grandmother and her family.
Grand Dishes is a collaboration between friends Anastasia and Iska.
Anastasia is a freelance writer whose work spans fashion magazine editorial and copy for fashion brands to travel features for a range of publications from The Telegraph to EasyJet Traveller magazine.
Iska works as a creative producer, creating multi-sensory food experiences across the globe and styling food for various brands and publications.
