Join us for two free, open to all launch events for The Elephant’s Secret Kitchen – a cookbook collaboratively produced by students and staff from UAL’s London College of Communication with Jamyang Buddhist Centre’s Cafe at Jamyang, Elephant and Castle. Books will be available for sale at a discount at both events.
Come to the LCC Book Launch to see behind the scenes production pictures, videos of the natural dying process and the printing of the book and meet students, staff and their Cafe at Jamyang collaborators on Thursday 27th September, 6.00-8.00 pm at Atrium Gallery, London College of Communication, Elephant & Castle, SE1 6SB.

This event showcases an exhibition of the making of the cookbook and how it was printed in-house, using an eco-friendly paper that is far more advanced than standard recycling processes, on the Heidelberg lithography press at LCC. In addition, demonstrations of how kitchen waste and plant matter were used to dye the bookmarks, producing over 40 different shades of colours.
Then meet the Cafe at Jamyang team on Jamyang’s 40th anniversary and see the place where everything started, the cobbled garden with the golden Buddha statue, the tiny kitchen and the Cafe itself. There'll be food of course, and more material from behind the scenes, on Saturday 6th October, from 12.30-2.00 pm at Cafe at Jamyang, 43 Renfrew Road, SE11 4NA.
Book for free here
The project was initiated by London College of Communication staff, Florence Hawkins and Rahel Zoller, with Ilaria Mezzogori, Director of Cafe at Jamyang. Participants in the project included students from across all three of LCC’s schools: Design, Media and Screen.
