In 2020, Artists’ Tuck Shop received National Lottery funding administered through Creative Scotland enabling us to undertake the ambitious project of producing Make Bake Cook Book. Featuring the artworks and recipes of 25 artists and collaborators based in Scotland with additional guest text contributions, this is not your run of the mill cookbook.

Some recipes are simple to follow, while others are deeply impractical. In some cases, artists have subverted the brief by supplying readers with additional instructions to follow in order to make their own origami or glaze recipe from home. Make Bake Cook Book compiles a fantastic array of creative responses from 25 artists based in Scotland, tasked with sharing a sense of the artwork they make, the food they like to cook and bake, while detailing their interests in both food and art.

proceeds from the book sales will be used to help fund future art commissions for artists’ tuck shop!
