As every dish has a story, a history or a tradition, every one of these nine recipes is connected to my private history, a specific relationship with a person, and a specific feeling connected to them.

I decided to use potatoes because they are a very strong part of the local culinary tradition, so I committed to deepening and refining the old skill of kartoffendrukken learnt in the kindergarten.

Each one of the recipes was copied ten times and inserted in a custom-made potato-printed card. They were available to be taken away.

Featuring: the pastries my grandfather and I used to bake when I was 6; my mother’s legendary risotto; my father’s meatloaf, one of the few recipes he is able to cook better than my mother; my best friends’ soup and chicken; a crafty little natural lantern, magic result of the winter table’s boredom; the first ever British dish my friends cooked for me; my partner’s secret pasta and a cake I baked for my amazing roommate’s birthday.
