The 1Shanthiroad Cookbook
edited by Suresh Jayaram
The 1Shanthiroad Cookbook will bring together a collection of recipes from the community kitchen of 1Shanthiroad Studio/Gallery, compiled and edited by the space's founding director, Suresh Jayaram.
Featuring recipes from a wide range of contributors, including artists, curators, patrons, residents, and the extended family of friends of 1Shanthiroad, the cookbook will serve as a portrait of an evolving cultural community.
Emerging from and responding to the history and legacy of 1Shanthiroad - Bangalore's oldest running non-profit residency and arts space - the cookbook will frame the kitchen as integral to the site and function of 1Shanthiroad, mapping recipes across generations, cultures, and timelines, while anchoring itself in the cultural history of the wider city of Bangalore.
