The Unappropriated Recipes - Edited by Olivia Chow

The Unappropriated Recipes is an unconventional publication celebrating Hong Kong through eighty contributions from a cross-section of the artists, curators, supporters, and collaborators who are integral to Para Site’s local and international community. Each of them, whether they have spent their entire lives in Hong Kong, or just a mere few days was invited to submit a personal recipe that includes an ingredient specific to Hong Kong, leading to a broad array of personal experiences, experiments, perceptions, interventions, and reactions to Hong Kong — wildly varied tastes of our city, highlighting its diverse cuisine and culture.


Contributors to the cookbook include:

Nadim Abbas, Osei Bonsu, Oscar Chan Yik Long, Heman Chong, Tyler Coburn, Cosmin Costinas, Hendrik Folkerts, Inti Guerrero, Mariam Ghani, Sheela Gowda, Ho Rui An, James T. Hong, ILee Kit, Godwin Koay, Anders Kreuger, Firenze Lai, Lam Hoi Sin,  Lau Wai, Leung Chi Wo,  Lyno Vuth, Lesley Ma, Michikazu Matsune, Pak Sheung Chuen, Mina Park, Qu Chang, Apoorva Rajagopal, Stefan Rusu, Tang Kwok Hin, Wong Binghao, Trevor Yeung, Yeung Yang, Samson Young, and many more!
