This book is the result of a rigorous and systematic investigation by Demetria Glace through the major leaks of the past 15 years, focusing on the theme of cooking. From Wikileaks to Hillary Clinton’s emails, Pizzagate and the world’s most influential companies (Enron, Sony), The Leaked Recipes Cookbook is a riotous insight into office culture, politics, data privacy, family and friendships. Part-reportage part-cookbook, this is a practical and thrilling tale for our times.

« There is no more quintessentially twenty-first-century cookbook than Leaked Recipes, consisting as it does of cookery techniques, including those for ‘overnight oatmeal’ and ‘crabmeat imperial’, that its author, Demetria Glace, unearthed in major tranches of leaked emails. » – The Happy Reader

« A cookbook that cuts through the thickets of paranoid web-spinning and overwhelmingly large files and personalises big data by dishing up conspiracies. » – Elephant Magazine

This publication is presented in collaboration with the IDFA DocLab Research and Development program, initiated by the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) and the Open Documentary Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

Demetria Glace graduated from University College London where she studied Human Rights. She works to find patterns and connections – telling big stories through small pieces of data. Demetria Glace now spends most of her time researching popular culture, reality TV, and technology.

Known for her delightful, innovative work in food & technology, Emilie Baltz uses food as a medium (and metaphor) for designing experiences that playfully provoke the everyday. She remixes the fields of design, performance, hospitality, photography and new media as a means of inspiring new possibilities in the world.
