The How Not To Cookbook- lessons learned the hard way is a limited edition book and art project by Aleksandra Mir that invites 1000 contributors from all around the world to give their advice on how not to cook. While the typical cookbook format gives you a recipe for obvious success it does not take into account the many ways in which its execution can fail.

Contribute: We are seeking submissions of your failures in the kitchen. If your submission is included you will receive a free limited edition copy of The How not to Cookbook- lessons learned the hard way - a treasure for your kitchen!

To read more about the project and submit a contribution, visit

Last day for submissions is Friday 1 May.

Big Things on the Beach is a public art trust in Portobello, a seaside suburb close to the city centre of Edinburgh, Scotland. It was formed by a group of residents in 2003 to explore the potential of the seafront as a site for engagement with public artworks by both emerging and established artists.

Since 2004 we have commissioned artists to create substantial temporary artworks, trained ourselves and others in the process of commissioning public artworks through international site visits and guest lectures and successfully raised funding to these ends.

Our current project - The Big Welcome - is supported by Creative Scotland, Portobello & Craigmillar Neighbourhood Partnership and Edinburgh City Libraries
