Our Neighbour Cooks is an urban intervention celebrating the diversity of cultures in the Chatsworth Road area of London. The event creates a platform for different local groups in the area to gather and share what they think is important for our rapidly changing neighbourhood.
Our Neighbour Cooks, part of the larger Dear Neighbours project, consists of 2 parts. Initially a community recipe collection is compiled and this is followed by a pop-up lunch event.
On the 2nd of June inside Rushmore Sunday Morning Market, each of the participants will contribute a dish, representing their culture, which will be shared on a large table. The recipes of the dishes will be hand stitched onto a memory cloth to become the community’s recipe collection, forming a snapshot documenting the neighbourhood at the current time.
