16-year-old Delaram on Samsø Island:
"In Iran, we would sit on the grass by the lake and eat. I was on the swing and looked at the trees and heard the birds. We ate Jujeh Kabab, chicken kebab with saffron. The day before, the chicken must have spices. This is my father's job. Kiwi makes meat tender."

The Project

FOOD FOR THOUGHT is a different kind of book about the favourite foods of 25 refugee children and teenagers.

The book is illustrated with children's drawings, photographs and texts in a visual design created by an award-winning team. Art Director Lotta Jörgensen, who is behind the world's best food magazine, Fool, and photographer Steven Achiam, who was awarded Best Photography in the World by Gourmand Awards for the Kiin Kiin cookbook Dead & Fermented.

The idea for the book, FOOD FOR THOUGHT, came when photojournalist Steven Achiam and journalist Brendan Killeen had had enough of hearing about escape routes and asylum policies. So they took off on a roadtrip around Jutland, Funen, Zealand and the Danish islands to find a different approach to refugees and to ask the universal question: What is your favourite food?

FOOD FOR THOUGHT is divided into 3 parts.

Listen! Consists of interviews about what lies behind the choice of the children’s favorite food. The young people describe how they see their lives in Denmark and their futures, what superpower they would wish they had, and what matters most in their lives.

Look! Contains colour drawings made for this book by the children and young people in the project. This is their very own, direct contribution to the book and the drawings include everything from a snowman or childhood home to a wolf on a hill. The photos in Look! show life and nature, where the young people are a part of the environment. It is a visual underscoring of their part in this society.

Taste! contains easy recipes for their favorite foods and photos taken together with the children, young people and parents in their kitchens. A chef has written up the recipes so they remain true to the original, personal recipes. They are easy to make and taste good.

The three sections of the FOOD FOR THOUGHT are illustrated and bound with an open back. The collection  comes in a folder illustrated by Rasmus Bregnhøi, recipient of the Danish Arts Foundation's three-year work scholarship.

The project is co-funded by the Sportsgood Foundation, Copyright Funds from the Danish Union of Journalists and Red Cross Youth.

Profits from book sales will go to the Danish Red Cross Youth.
