RECIPES FOR DISASTER: Zine Launch and Zoom Dinner
Recipes for Disaster is the magazine version of comfort food. It’s a quarantine cooking zine built from the ashes of the dinner parties, restaurant hangs, and fearless family gatherings of our pre-pandemic lives, aimed at understanding the ways that a virus can restructure even the most mundane parts of one’s day.
Join the Recipes for Disaster editors for the digital launch of our quarantine passion project and a reading from some of our contributors.
Feel free to bring your favorite homemade quarantine meal snack or drink along with you to enjoy during the readings and show off. Hate cooking? Bring your favorite local takeout or pour yourself a glass of wine. After the reading, there will be a Q&A about the project and publishing during a pandemic.
