The Book
COMING SOON...

A full colour photo cookery book will accompany the film. The book will include recipes that people from diverse faith communities in Ealing have cooked for the Spiritual Flavours project. These recipes have been chosen because of their biographical and spiritual significance. The book, which is part of a research process, will visually explore the relationship between food, faith and home, by intertwining portraits, biographical narratives, visual interpretations of such narratives, pictures of the cooked dishes and the food preparation, home interiors and objects, and Ealing landscapes.





Since she married, Betty made Christmas pudding every year without fail. However, she stopped when her husband sadly passed away. For the project Spiritual Flavours, Betty has cooked the Christmas pudding for the first time in twenty-two years. In making the pudding, she has used the calico cloth in the way her Mum would have used it.
