C02 Jeremy Bentham’s Prison Cooking: A Collection of Utilitarian Recipes
A brief history of 18th and 19th century British philosopher Jeremy Bentham’s Panopticon prison and his utilitarian recipes.
Get a taste of the strange and brilliant mind of British philosopher and social reformer Jeremy Bentham, the founder of modern utilitarianism.
Jeremy Bentham’s Prison Cooking is a brief history of Bentham’s never-realised Panopticon prison and a collection of the utilitarian recipes which he intended to be cooked in the prison kitchen. Alongside beautiful original illustrations (by illustrator Jake Lamerton), this book includes images, recipes and notes from Bentham’s manuscripts, which were transcribed and archived through the work of UCL’s Transcribe Bentham project (http://ww.ucl.ac.uk/transcribe-bentham/)
The book also features a foreword by Fergus Henderson (celebrated Michelin-starred chef, and founder of St JOHN Restaurant in London), an introduction by Dr Tim Causer (Transcribe Bentham co-ordinator), and commentary by Dr Annie Gray (Kitchen Cabinet food historian).
‘Recipes to wrestle with.’ – Chef Fergus Henderson, St JOHN Restaurant
‘Success in cooking any of Bentham’s recipes depends on your kitchen, your knowledge, your balls and your dedication.’ – Dr Annie Gray, Food Historian
