How to Cook like a Great Artist

How-to-Cook-Like-a-Great-Artist-featured-image.png
.....The Artist's Palate contains an unprecedented collection of favorite recipes from some of the most famous international artists throughout history -- from Michelangelo, Henri Matisse, and Mary Cassatt to Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol, and Jeff Koons. Featuring over 125 recipes from 89 great artists, and accompanied by more than 150 photographs of the artists and their work, family snapshots, artworks, documents, and memorabilia, this book offers a unique look at the private lives and appetites of some of the world's most creative personalities. (from the Publisher)

.......One of the most influential painters of modern times, Claude Monet lived for half his life in the famous house at Giverny. It was after moving here in 1883 with his future second wife, Alice Hoschedé, and their eight children that Monet's work finally achieved recognition. His growing success meant that he was able to indulge his passion for comfort and good living.

Family meals, special celebrations, luncheons with friends, picnics: all reflected the Monets' love of good food. Just as the inspiration for many of Monet's paintings was drawn from his beloved gardens and the surrounding Normandy landscape, so the meals served at Giverny were based upon superb ingredients from the kitchen-garden (a work of art in itself), the farmyard, and the French countryside.  (from the Publisher)


At the Auberge Ravoux, in a tiny artists’ village twenty miles from Paris, Vincent Van Gogh found a measure of peace in his ill-starred life—and experienced an unparalleled burst of creativity, producing seventy masterpieces and studies. The Auberge still operates today as the Maison de Van Gogh. Little has changed since Van Gogh first set down his bags more than a century ago, and visitors are still treated to the comforting, delicious regional cuisine that he would have dined upon.
(from the Publisher)

...In the tradition of the best-selling Monet's Table, Frida's Fiestas is a personal account in words and pictures of many important and happy events in the life of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, and a scrapbook, assembled by her stepdaughter, of recipes for more than 100 dishes that Frida served to family and friends with her characteristic enthusiasm for all the pleasures of life. (from the Publisher)

...Matisse, Picasso, Hockney—they may not have been from the same period, but they all painted still lifes of food. And they are not alone. Andy Warhol painted soup cans, Claes Oldenburg sculpted an ice cream cone on the top of a building in Cologne, Jack Kerouac’s Sal ate apple pie across the country, and Truman Capote served chicken hash at the Black and White Ball. Food has always played a role in art, but how well and what did the artists themselves eat? Exploring a panoply of artworks of food, cooking, and eating from Europe and the Americas, The Modern Art Cookbook opens a window into the lives of artists, writers, and poets in the kitchen and the studio throughout the twentieth century and beyond.(from the Publisher)

Its not just something to read, these books are full of easy, delicious recipes that will appeal to creative cooks.

The art inspired recipes are memorable, making them perfect for parties or special occasions.

“.....How would you like to dine in Van Gogh's olive orchard or in Bonnard's garden? What would be served at Mary Cassatt's afternoon tea? And a slice of which Thiebaud cake would you choose ... given the chance?
In The Artist's Table, fourteen world-renowned chefs create delectable menus inspired by masterpieces in the National Gallery of Art collections. These contemporary masters of the culinary arts are brought together with the works of great artists, and the result is a joyful celebration of art and food.”  (from the Publisher)

....This companion volume to the bestselling Monet's Table is a sumptuous evocation of the life, art, and dining style of one of the world's most celebrated Impressionist painters. It presents more than 60 recipes, accompanied by reproductions of Renoir's paintings and original full-color photos of turn-of-the-century French life. (from the Publisher)

......As beloved as Provence was to Cezanne, so too were his favorite Provencal dishes. Although he once claimed that his favorite meal was "potatoes in oil," he enjoyed a variety of foods prepared by his mother and later by his cook, Madame Bremond. Fifty of these special recipes are included in this book, attesting to the simple and bounteous Provencal cuisine that Cezanne held so dear. (from the Publisher)

......Great artists and great cooks have long been inspired by gardens and the many sensory gifts they provide. Artist Claude Monet took inspiration from his gardens and the lily ponds at Giverny. Van Gogh, Manet, Matisse, and Cezanne created still life masterpieces of fruit and flowers. Similarly, cooks from Julia Child and Alice Waters, to Patricia Wells and Jamie Oliver have taken culinary inspiration from homegrown or fresh local produce. Artist Maryjo Koch explores this centuries-old connection in a new cookbook inspired by her studio garden. The garden not only provides the artistic subjects she and her many students paint, but it also serves as the culinary toolbox for the delectable and visual feasts she prepares for her family, guests, and painting classes throughout the year.
(from the Publisher)

...Taking cues from modern art’s most revered artists, these twenty-seven showstopping desserts exhibit the charm and sophistication of works by Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, Henri Matisse, Jeff Koons, Roy Lichtenstein, Richard Avedon, Wayne  Thiebaud, and more. Featuring an image of the original artwork alongside a museum curator’s perspective on the original piece and detailed, easy-to-follow directions (with step-by-step assembly guides adapted for home bakers), Modern Art Desserts will inspire a kitchen gallery of stunning treats.  (from the Publisher)
