Dirty Wall Project
Kerosene Curry is a cookbook and complimentary set of spice packs created to fund positive community initiatives benefitting the women and children of the Saki Naka slum in Mumbai, India. I donated a year of my time and design skills in contribution to this meaningful project.
The concept was to take the simple yet delicious recipes from the ramshackle tents and one burner kerosene stoves of this slum, and share them with the world. All profits from the cookbook are returned directly to them, by building schools for children and creating workspaces for the women.
The book and spice packs needed to reflect the rich and complex culture of the people – with warm colours, a deep patina design, and vivid photography to bring life to the stories.
