These three bloggers will accompany Europe`s Kitchen throughout the year. Their contributions will be available here.
Blogger Marie Detjen
Marie Detjen lives in Berlin and London. Her passion for Henry James and the German Civil Code lead her to pursue a law degree next to her studies in social science and literature. When she’s not in university, she works as an assistant editor for Verfassungsblog, writes fiction, and plays the piano.
Blogger Mohammed Z. Rahman
Mohammed Z. Rahman is a writer, visual artist and keen cook based in London. He has a BA in Social Anthropology and worked on projects with Tate Modern and the Smithsonian Institute. Mohammed’s short fiction and art inescapably gravitate towards images of food as a foundation of community and self. More recently he has gained experience catering for small events with Queer Masala, a community kitchen for Queer people of colour.
