This illustrated zine compiles—and tries out!—recipes left on tombstones around the world. These recipes, carved and etched on granite gravestones, dictate—sometimes hazily—the instructions for delicious fare such as cookies, cobblers, and bread. Scouring cemeteries and the internet, we collected and attempted seven of these kitchen formulas, found in burial grounds from Alaska to Israel.

This zine is printed in color and measures 5.5" x 8.5" and has a staple binding. It includes the recipes as well as photographs of our attempts to make each recipe as a tribute to the chefs who loved these sweet treats so much they literally took them to their graves. The 20-page zine also includes a selection of food-themed epitaphs as well as some recipes we would consider for our own final resting places.

'Cooking with the Dead' is a collaboration between Bronwyn Hazelwood, Allison C. Meier, and Claire Voon.

Such a great zine and an original idea! I have both zines of theirs so far. I didn’t know that people put recipes on their tombstones! This is my second zine from this shop and I love them. Please make more!!!
