Cooking, recovery and connections have taken on extra significance in the last 18 months.
Those three words also happen to be the title of a cookbook that’s emerged in the aftermath of the sudden, hard lockdown of nine Melbourne public housing towers in July last year, which was found to have breached basic human rights.
The cookbook, produced by residents, is a reminder of community resilience through sharing food cultures.
