In 2020, Artists’ Tuck Shop received National Lottery funding administered through Creative Scotland enabling us to undertake the ambitious project of producing Make Bake Cook Book: A Collection of Artists' Works and Recipes.
Featuring the artworks and recipes of 25 artists and collaborators based in Scotland with additional guest text contributions, this is not your run of the mill cookbook.
Some recipes are simple to follow, while others are deeply impractical. In some cases, artists have subverted the brief by supplying readers with additional instructions to follow in order to make their own origami or glaze recipe from home. Make Bake Cook Book compiles a fantastic array of creative responses from 25 artists based in Scotland, tasked with sharing a sense of the artwork they make, the food they like to cook and bake, while detailing their interests in both food and art.
We are using Make Bake Cook Book as a fundraising tool to enable us to commission local artists to make special edition art products to sell exclusively via Artists' Tuck Shop. In addition to an artist fee and production budget the commissioned artists also receice 70% from each sale we make of the resulting product.
Some of the recipes you can look forward to:
