There is a lot of downtime in the kitchen: waiting for meat to marinate, bread to rise, and vegetables to pickle. These five recipes require long wait times — and plenty of patience. After all, good things can’t be rushed. Each dish includes an introduction and recipe by German food blogger Britta Gädtke, accompanied by Washington, D.C. photographer Aphra Adkins’s creative food styling and photography.

Recipes and photography were created for the online publication STILLSTAND, an homage to standstills and their poetic beauty. Find out more at:

In the exhibit, you can access each of the recipes in German and English via the QR code attached to the canning jars on the kitchen counter.
