Home Made in Smethwick

Intense smells of cooking from around the world permeate the densely populated, terraced streets of Smethwick, one of England’s most ethnically diverse towns. In addition to being a reception area for newly arrived immigrants, Smethwick has long been a neighbourhood of Irish, Sikh, Muslim, Afro-Caribbean and White British communities.

More than a cookbook, this collection of portraits and recipes reveals how food can act as a bridge from one continent to another; from one generation to the next; and from one house to its neighbour. Home Made in Smethwick was commissioned and published in 2016 by Multistory as part of their Black Country Stories programme.
