Please join us in the Bookshop and meet photographer Laura Cuch who is presenting her self published book Spiritiual Flavours.
Spiritual Flavours is a photo/cookbook that brings together recipes from people who belong to different faith communities in one neighbourhood in the suburbs of West London, in Ealing. These faith communities comprise a synagogue, a Sri Lankan Hindu Temple, a mosque, a Sikh Gurdwara, an Anglican church, a multicultural Roman Catholic church, a Polish Catholic church and an ethnically diverse Pentecostal church. These recipes have been chosen because of their biographical and spiritual significance and reveal the diversity of contemporary suburban London, but also show the many different ways that food and faith are inter-related. Through interviews and cooking sessions, the book pays attention to affective relationships with food, as a vehicle to explore ideas about inheritance, tradition and belief.
The book is part of the wider Spiritual Flavours project, which also includes a twenty-eight-minute film with the same name; the photographic series Spiritual Flavours: Meals; and the interactive installation Spiritual Flavours Spice Lab. These complementary pieces form part of an exhibition installation and explore different dimensions of food and spirituality.
