Cooking in Brexit

Personal project / 2017

Embark on a culinary journey with "Cooking in Brexit," a unique cookbook featuring foreign recipes crafted exclusively with British ingredients. Authored by the outspoken chef John Brand, a supporter of UKIP, the recipes aim to celebrate the rich diversity of British cuisine, asserting that even with influences from global food cultures, Brits can thrive without relying on external influences.

Beyond its culinary appeal, "Cooking in Brexit" and the character of John Brand serve as a thought-provoking commentary on the events surrounding Brexit. Through a lens of sarcasm, humor, and absurdity, the book sheds light on pertinent issues, urging readers to contemplate the complexities of the political landscape in a light-hearted manner.
The book's design draws inspiration from classic British cooking books, reminiscent of the Sainsbury’s cooking book series. This aesthetic choice not only adds a touch of nostalgia but also serves as a visual ode to the past, inviting readers to reminisce about "when things were better." Immerse yourself in the culinary and cultural exploration offered by "Cooking in Brexit" — a cookbook that transcends flavors and narratives.
