Letter from Joseph

Joseph writes about learning to make rice, switching ingredients around and how he makes a tuna vegetable pasta bake.

Joseph's letter makes me think about how knowledge can be exchanged through the post and where we learn to care for others.

Letter from Maria

Maria​ writes about meal planning, iron deficiency, Zoom fatigue and how she and her partner make chickpea curry.

Maria's letter makes me think the transferal of knowledge through the post and care habits and rituals.

Letter from Shauna

Shauna writes about rainy days, her mother dubbing 'spag bol' her favourite food and (lack of measurements) while sharing a spaghetti bolognese recipe.

Shauna's letter makes me think about where we learn our practices of care.

Letter from Rebecca

Rebecca writes about self-care and connecting through food and included a recipe for a grilled aubergine pasta.

Their letter makes me think about habits and rituals surrounding meals and where we learn to care for others. ​

Letter from Danielle

Danielle writes about cooking along with my risotto recipe, cooking with friends and how she makes a bean chilli. She suggests waiting for a rainy day to make it. 

Their letter makes me think about practicing care habits and rituals.

Letter from Toby

Letter from Alice

Alice writes about the alterations they made to my recipe, the difference between coking for family friends and how they make sweetcorn patties. Their letter unfortunately arrived ripped up.

Alice's letter makes me think about material labour and self care.

Letter from Freya

Freya writes about caring for herself through bulk cooking, looking after a poorly housemate, comfort foods and how she makes beans and rice.

Freya's letter makes me think about the material labour involved in self-care.

Toby writes about creating environments where everybody pitches in, happiness and health and shares the meal of following along a fajita kit.

 

Toby's letter makes me think about (sharing) material labour and where we learn our practices of care.
