Abstract or Description

Agnes’ Easter Żurek recipe is part of the SPIRITUAL FLAVOURS photo/cookbook, which 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 notions of home, family, tradition, diversity, migration, adaptation, past/future aspirations and belief. The book is available at The Photographers' Gallery Bookshop.
