Home Made in Smethwick portrays one of the most culturally rich and ethnically diverse towns in the UK through the language of food. This collection of portraits, handwritten recipes and stories reveals how food acts as a bridge from one continent to another; from one generation to the next; and from one house to its neighbour.
