MINCHŌ ISSUE 19
Minchō #19 echoes the recent fascination with cooking in an issue about food, creativity and collaboration, ranging from food illustration and design to works that celebrate the spirit of communal eating and drinking to help readers to take a cultural approach to this succulent theme.
In an age of Instagram-perfect dishes, we have prepared a varied, intriguing, entertaining and thought-provoking menu to delight the most demanding palates, and it consists of the following courses: food-filled portfolios by Louise Lockhart (who grants us an interview), Furze Chan, Lucile Prache and Vicki Turner, Derek Yaniger's artworks depicting bar scenes, a short film about shaping the identity at family Sunday Lunch, Roberta Vázquez's zines and comics starring a funny and dysfunctional edible gang, Louise Fili's life devoted to food and restaurant branding, a tasty selection of book covers by Spanish designer, Manuel Estrada, culinary events and diaries by Bobby Baker, and for dessert, a cookbook for certain dietary restrictions, illustrated by Felix Bork.
The aluminium container on the front-cover that invites you to open this tasty issue is the creative invitation to a food exhibition by the London artist and activist, Bobby Baker, the perfect metaphor for the creation of something exciting out of the ordinary. In the end, this is what food-related art and cooking is all about.
