Join us for the launch of The Unappropriated Recipes cookbook, Para Site’s first crowdfunded project. The evening will feature performances by contributorsand will also showcase s recipe as an open bar.
The Unappropriated Recipes is a collection of eighty community-sourced unconventional recipes (gastronomically viable or merely deliciously metaphorical) offering a broad array of personal experiences, experiments, perceptions, interventions, and reactions to Hong Kong and its different layers. The official launch event marks the successful completion of this kickstarter-funded project and is a way for us to thank the entire community that made it all possible!
The evening includes a three-course meal of performances. For appetizers, Para Site’s Associate Curatorwill be blending together a Thai salad of literary books with a side of steaming hot Hong Kong style shrimp dumplings. The hearty main course of “Doll Instant Noodles with Pork Bean Sauce Pie” by artist will combine two favourite comfort foods into a questionably palatable dish. And for dessert, artist ’s “Rice Weevil Pudding” transforms this season’s uninvited pests into a delicious protein-packed treat. Throughout the night, quench your thirst at artist s bar, inspired by his recipe “Liquid Diet.”
We’d like to once again thank the 263 supporters of our kickstarter campaign, who helped turn the initial idea of The Unappropriated Recipes into a hardcover, hot-stamped reality. We could not have done it without you and the wonderful community of Para Site’s collaboraters, so bring your friends and family and join us at the launch!
