    From design studio Meat:

    Chinese Protest Recipes is a project of resistance. It is a very personal project that protests against racial inequality in the food world. In this moment, as we struggle to get through a racial pandemic, this project acts as a form of culinary and literary protest, through the lens of Chinese food.

    Calling for a decolonized approach to cuisine, Chinese Protest Recipes urges us all to look beyond what has been validated by Eurocentric culinary accolades or institutions – and toward an exchange of cultural knowledge produced and perfected with patience, practice, and love. The project uses a stripped back visual language inspired by the raw emotion of protest graphics.

    Started originally as a takeover on @doofmagazine, the official recipe book just dropped as a free digital download. In exchange, donations are encouraged to support Black Lives Matter. A limited edition risograph printed version, and t-shirts will be released soon, with 100% of the proceeds going to support Color of Change.

    Right Grotesk is used for headlines in combination with New Diane Script. Running texts use Helvetica and Untitled Serif. An unidentified typeface is used for lines of Chinese text set in a small point size on the top and bottom of most pages.
