Join us for the launch of the Elephant’s Secret Kitchen – a cookbook collaboratively produced by students and staff from London College of Communication with the Cafe at Jamyang, situated at the Jamyang Buddhist Centre in Elephant and Castle.
The launch event will showcase an exhibition of the making of the cookbook and how it was printed in-house on the Heidelberg lithography press at LCC. In addition, demonstrations of how kitchen waste and plant matter were used to dye the bookmarks, producing over 40 different shades of colours.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet with and chat to participants involved in the project. Copies of The Elephant’s Secret Kitchen will also be available for sale.
The project was initiated by London College of Communication staff Florence Hawkins and Rahel Zoller, plus Ilaria Mezzogori at the Cafe at Jamyang. Participants in the project included students from across all three of LCC’s schools; Design, Media and Screen.
