The dishes are presented in a "song-by-song, day-by-day basis," according to a press release. All proceeds from the book will benefit Community Food Centres Canada, a non-profit focused on promoting "health, belonging and social justice in low-income communities across Canada through the power of food."
In a statement about the project, Feist wrote that the "communal process" of recording her latest LP "extended to the community of the kitchen." "We hope this book will embolden you to expand your repertoire, stock up on simple staples and invite friends into your kitchen to cook some of these meals with them," she said.
Feist issued Pleasure, her fifth LP and first in six years, in April. The following month, the singer opened up to Rolling Stone about the record's heavy themes and inspirations.
"Maybe [Pleasure] is about shifting from that tangle, or that foggy situation where I couldn’t see the forest for the trees," she said. "I'm getting a grasp on that feeling by naming it something that had a little bit more aspiration in it. It's me figuring out how not to tend toward pessimism, or a teenage investment in darkness that stuck with me, as I always have. It's my own version of alchemy."
