In the late winter of 2014, artist and chef Augustin Grenèche created a little dinner series called “People’s Kitchen” in a 1960’s diner turned private social club in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. It went on for a few nights a week for several weeks, with each day’s menu limited to 18 people. The sweet and comically vulgar cookbook Augustin wrote and illustrated to document the People’s Kitchen has been floating in digital purgatory for the last three years. Now Patrick Kiley and Publication Studio bring it to the people in physical form at last, at just the moment when Augustin returns to America to chef another pop-up restaurant, this time deep in the Catskills.
Patrick Kiley runs Publication Studio Hudson, an on-demand publisher and bookmaker located in Troy.
