Share Your Soul Food

What is your soul food? Share your recipes with #SoulFoodBristol

“Now is the time to bring together cultures, inspiration and resources to celebrate the role of food in the community and the efforts by all in ensuring our neighbours and loved ones have what they need”

Gem Burgoyne, St Pauls Learning Centre

The Architecture Centre is working in partnership with the communities of St Pauls over the next 6 months as part of The Green Way Project. In the first phase we worked with locals to co-design a plan for the area, now we’re collecting recipes from Bristolians to feed into designs for capital development around St Pauls.

Do you have a favourite recipe? What are you craving in lockdown? What meals lift your spirit and bring happiness into your home? What is your soul food?

Anna Rutherford, Director of The Architecture Centre, explains;

“Food brings people together, especially in times of adversity. Cooking keeps us connected and grounded. We’re asking Bristolians and locals to St Pauls to share their favourite recipes, whether these are new creations or recipes that have been in our families for generations. The designs will feed into artwork being created with organisations across St Pauls as part of the innovative Green Way project.”

‘It’s difficult times like these that remind us that friends, family, community and the food and hopeful stories that feed us are really important in nourishing and supporting us.’

Cllr Jude English, Green Councillor for Ashley Ward, Bristol City Council

This April, we’re working in partnership with the Bristol-based social enterprise, 91 Ways to Build a Global City on The Green Way project.

• Take a photo of a written recipe (on paper or in a book) and post it on the Facebook Group

• Type out your recipe and post it in the Facebook Group

• Take a video of you or your family member talking through your recipe and share it on the Facebook Group

This project is a great opportunity to share recipes with our neighbours in lockdown. The recipes will then go on to inspire permanent artworks which reflect and celebrate the diversity and culinary heritage of the

area. Bristolians will be able to take pictures of the recipe murals and bring them to life in their own homes.
