After years of making food together in gallery settings and art institutions around the world, ‘bastard brothers’ Rirkrit Tiravanija and Antto Melasniemi release their first collaborative cookbook. The authors offer what one could refer to as an “adulterated” fare, with over 50 recipes illustrated by photographer Janne Tuunanen as he follows the bastards on a culinary adventure from a fish sauce farm in Thailand to the Archipelago of Finland. Through their unabashed, un-precious and unapologetic approach to cooking, the chefs put on a show, and remind us that culture is a process.
