VITAtijme Skin Hungry Book
“Ready your tastebuds, we’ve been cooking up some fashion therapy!” - VITAtijme
This cookbook is part of a SKIN HUNGRY, a project initiated by VITAtijme. It holds recipes and stories of 16 creatives from (and around) Amsterdam cooked during lockdown.
SKIN HUNGRY is an outcome of the pandemic, when we were living through a time of uncertainty and distancing, during which we needed to ‘take care’ by denying ourselves intimacy and forgetting about the joy of dressing up. At home, many of us moved to the kitchen to cook soothing and healthy meals, and to practise our skills in order to rid our minds of worries and sadness. And yet, our bodies were trembling with desire - our skin was left hungry and our mood crumbled. The project responds to this shared experience by reminding us of the moments we almost took for granted but have since lost: meals amongst our friends, lovers, or family, all dressed up and happy. How do we foster those moments, even when we are away from the ones we love? “Dress up! It lightens your mood and makes your food taste better!”
