Confessions of an Anonymous Recipe 2019

A commissioned essay (2019) for Exquisite Course, an experimental cookbook manuscript edited by Claire Hungerford.

Organized and edited by graphic designer, Claire Hungerford, Exquisite Course is a culinary adaptation of the collaborative Surrealist parlor game. Composed of three-part recipes made up of contributions from forty-seven writers, artists and chefs, the unruly cookbook needed a short essay to provide a touch of context. At Claire’s invitation, I wrote a very weird essay from the point of view of an anonymous recipe.
