Eating at Hotel Il Pellicano

Published by Violette Editions
Photographs by Juergen Teller. Introduction by Will Self. Text by Antonio Guida.

Featured image, by Juergen Teller, is reproduced from <I>Eating at Hotel Il Pellicano</I>.In this extraordinary cook book, Juergen Teller photographs extravagantly elegant food from the celebrated Hotel Il Pellicano in Tuscany. Known for subverting the conventions of fashion and photography, Teller here turns his eye to the complexity and originality of two-Michelin-starred food created by chef Antonio Guida. Eleven menus of five ambitiously inspirational courses encapsulate the unique, offhanded chic of the Hotel Il Pellicano, in Teller’s second photographic collaboration with this exclusive Italian retreat. One of the hippest and most beautiful destinations in the world, the Hotel Il Pellicano is a hangout for the design, fashion and art worlds. In 2011 an eponymous book--with photography by John Swope, Slim Aarons and Juergen Teller and an introduction by Bob Colacello--chronicled the glamour of this modern-day dolce vita, from the days when Emilio Pucci, Douglas Fairbanks Jr, Britt Ekland and Susanna Agnelli could be found relaxing by the pool, to the carefree spirit preserved today. Edited and produced by Violette Editions and published by Rizzoli, this first book was reprinted within a year. Eating at Hotel Il Pellicano, published by Violette Editions, is a photography book whose subject is food, style and place. Each menu is named after one of today’s illustrious visitors--Missoni, Borghese, Noguchi, etc.--conjuring delicious fantasies of Italian holidays in days of endless sunshine. Writer Will Self sets the scene in a preface dispatched from his suite.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Elle Magazine

Anne Slowey

Fashion photog Juergen Teller has lent his inimitable eye to Eating at Hotel Il Pelicano, a look at the otherworldly creations of twice-Michelin- starred Antonio Guida, head chef at the jet-set-favored Tuscany retreat.

Wallpaper.com

Jonathan Bell

With images by Juergen Teller and text by chef Antonio Guida (plus an introduction by Will Self), this is food photography reinvented for the modern age - all bright colours, dark shadows and glistening sauces. Teller treats food as he treats the human body, getting up close and personal, voyeuristically emphasising the unusual and perverse. Guida's residency at the Hotel Il Pellicano in Grosseto has resulted in two Michelin stars, and a transformation of the remote retreat into a gastronomic destination.

Ball Harbour Magazine

Noelle Lacombe

In this cookbook, Juergen Teller photographs the extravagantly elegant food from the celebrated Hotel Il Pelicano in Tuscany. This title explores the complexity and originality of two-Michelin-starred chef Antonio Guida and his wild and whimsical dishes.

WSJ Magazine

Brekke Fletcher

Photographer Juergen Teller's images of chef Antonio Guida's sculptural culinary creations are textual, Technicolor, transporting and not at all typical of the genre - just like a meal at this ultimate Tuscan seaside resort.

Harper's Bazaar

Romy Oltuski

The Tuscan jewel Hotel Il Pellicano is famous for its glamorous roster of jet-setting guests - from Agnellis to Puccis. Now, photographer Juergen Teller captures the creations of its two-Michelin-star-chef, Antonio Guida, with a spectacular cookbook, Eating at Hotel Il Pellicano. Adorned with neon dollops and edible flowers, these dishes marvel beyond imagination.
