A paper zine made by artist Holly White and historian Elsa Richardson to accompany an evening pop-up restaurant - 'the Eustace Miles Restaurant' hosted by Glasgow CCA in 2019.
Opened in 1906 at the western end of Covent Garden, the original Eustace Miles was the most famous vegetarian restaurant in Edwardian London. Promoted as a ‘restaurant with ideals’ it served an entirely meat-free menu, sold vegetarian cookbooks and held weekly lectures on diet reform. It also played host to a wide range of political groups and was especially popular with suffragettes, who held breakfasts for recent-releases from Holloway Prison in one of its upstairs rooms. The restaurant’s popularity was due, in part, to its celebrity owner. A champion tennis player and Olympic medallist, Eustace Hamilton Miles made his name as an outspoken champion of physical exercise, mental discipline and the so-called ‘Simpler Foods’.
The zine contains new writing by Richardson and several of Miles' original recipes illustrated by White.
