The Interplanetary Cookbook series features recipes, artefacts, and stories on cooking and eating in space. As an evolving cookbook, each volume explores interplanetary food through a different lens. 


Volume I combines designs by Maggie Coblentz with a collection of international contributions submitted through an open call. 

Volume II features a special menu for zero gravity imagined through a collaboration with the restaurant Alchemist.

These speculative recipes and designs are supplemented with special features about the past, present, and future of interplanetary food. Less of a traditional cookbook, it expresses ideas about life in space through favour and texture. 






The Interplanetary Cookbook series was supported by the MIT Space Exploration Initative.
