How Fine A Mess

May 2017 - 18  Writing

As part of dust collective I developed the editorial focus of the bimonthly publication How Fine A Mess, working on 6 editions of the journal. Mess contains interviews, articles and artworks that explore food production, consumption, sustainability and health. Rooted in Sheffield,the publication draws on the rich landscape of the city’s diverse communities to share ideas around sustainable living and the future of food. With content from academics, artists, makers and doers Mess disseminates research and creative practices to a wide public as well as giving individuals working on grassroots projects, social enterprises and charity organisations a platform to share their work, knowledge and passion.

Hot Pot

14th September 2017  Writing

Taking Burgess’s recipe for Lancashire hot pot as a framework from which to discuss and interpret the varied activities of preparing, producing and consuming food, Hot Pot brings together new works by Will Carr, Melanie Jackson, Kit Poulson, Niamh Riordan and Marie Toseland as well as a collection of recipes from Manchester chef Mary Ellen McTague, Fairland Collective and Studio Morison. Each contribution to the book presents a unique take on Burgess’s recipe for hot pot and the role of food more generally throughout his extensive oeuvre.

The book launched at The Whitworth Manchester and is available to purchase here
