One Pot Project

One Pot Project was a series of community meals, organised by Fairland Collective. Prepared using a single induction hob and only one pot, the making of the meal was a collaborative task.

A One Pot event might consist of dumpling stuffing, pasta shaping, spoon making, tablecloth printing, recipe collecting, pickling local produce, and always lunch alongside 20 strangers, fed from the communal pot. Alongside the cooking, library users are invited to add to the developing One Pot Kit – a portable set of crockery, tableware, recipes, ingredients and library-made products which has become part of the library’s permanent collections, and a resource for future meals.
