AnOther

Natalie Rigg

Cooking With Artists is a beautifully considered manifestation of Stone’s outlook and aesthetic. Containing forewords by Fischer and Brown, artworks by Cassandra MacLeod, Spencer Sweeney and Elizabeth Peyton, alongside concise recipes and photographs of Stone’s own family meals, the resulting tome feels inspired and authentically personal.

Milky Magazine

Mina Stone is the chef artists love.

VICE

The lines between art and cooking are blurred for chef Mina Stone [...] Cooking for Artists, published under Fischer's imprint Kiito-San, includes 70 of Stone's family-style recipes inspired by her Greek heritage and passion for fresh, delicious food. Stone and Fischer sat down with us to discuss the cookbook, what takes place around the lunch table in Fischer's studio, and why even junk food can be considered "perfect food."

Maimoun

“Cooking for Artists” has an undeniable ease in creation for the dishes outlined.

Museeum

Jessica Dang

Mina Stone’s simple and colorful cooking has besotted the palates of artists and art galleries such as Urs Fischer, Elizabeth Peyton, Gagosian Gallery, and Gavin Brown’s Enterprises. As a private chef to such luminaries, she has been given carte blanche to freely experiment in the kitchen to her heart’s desire and, through the process, discovered a singular style of cuisine of her own: modern healthful dishes that pay homage to her Greek heritage and look like works of art themselves on the table, from shaved vegetable salads to braised meats.

Pappas Post

Gregory Pappas

Renowned for the accessible conviviality of her menus, Stone is best known for her acclaimed 2015 book Cooking for Artists designed by artist Urs Fischer and featuring more than 70 of Stone’s family-style recipes alongside drawings by artists

Maywarble

The social aspect is also a focus, so it is apt that Greek cuisine is predominant. The generous warmth and convivial atmosphere is porous – these are dinner parties you wished you could have been invited.

Artnet

Tatiana Berg

Get This Book If You: love Milton Avery seascapes, aspire to a wardrobe full of Rachel Comey, dream of a the perfect Greek Island Airbnb, or throw a lot dinner parties where you swan around in caftans and insist your guests have another helping of the tzatziki...

Grubstreet

Robin Raisfield

Stone started private cheffing to support herself after fashion school but eventually dropped the dress designing for food full-time, establishing a niche in the art world by catering gallery dinners and as Urs Fischer’s in-studio cook. That job led to [her] book [Cooking for Artists] and to her next gig, as chef-partner of Mina’s at MoMA PS1.

New York Times: T Magazine

Thessaly La Force

Stone’s cookbook has become a kind of guide for me at home, not just as an introduction to Greek food but also on how to cook for guests without going over the top.

Time Out New York

Emma Orlow

Her simple-yet-nourishing style of cooking is well-suited to an era of homecooks confined largely to sprucing up their shelf-stable pantry items.

Fab Over Fifty

Geri Brin

Cooking for Artists, a 2015 journal documenting the recipes Mina created for non-stop gallery events, has done well and is sold in every major museum. Drawing on Greek, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cultures – and adding her own spin as a New Yorker – Mina calls her dishes “simple and accessible, featuring ingredients you can get from your corner store.”

INTERVIEW with 'Cooking for Artists' author Mina Stone!

It's not often that we have a cookbook on our list, but right now we have one that is both a universal staff favorite and one of Bon Appétit's "Best of 2015!" Read on for a charming interview with author Mina Stone, house chef to a growing list of luminary artists and galleries initiated by Urs Fischer and Gavin Brown's Enterprise about five years ago. Mina's joie de vivre is simply infectious, broadcasting from every page of this simple, realistic and yet strangely galvanizing book of recipes inspired by her Greek Yiayia's unselfconscious Mediterranean cooking. It's the perfect guide for healthy but but still lustful eating in the new year.

Greek yiayia cooking for the next generation in Mina Stone's 'Cooking for Artists'

Greek yiayia cooking for the next generation in Mina Stone's 'Cooking for Artists'

Featured spreads are from Mina Stone's best-selling cookbook, Cooking for Artists—inspired by the food she grew up cooking with her Greek yiayia, and on display at her new cafe, Mina's, at MoMA PS1. One of our favorite Holiday Gift Books for Food Lovers, 2019, this volume presents the dishes Stone developed as chef to galleries and artists including Gavin Brown's Enterprise and Urs Fischer, among many others. "I was twenty-four years old and had no idea what I was getting into," Stone writes in her Introduction. "I was freshly out of art school with a BFA in fashion and my own small line of dresses. I started cooking to support myself while I tried to build my label, and—long story short—I realized I crawled into bed with cookbooks much more often than with Vogue. I was never formally trained. I learned mostly on my own, mostly from cooking shows (yes!), and mostly from my eighty-six-year-old Greek yiayia, who cooks every single day the most delicious food you've ever had. She taught me to boil potatoes before roasting them, to make them extra-crispy and soft. She taught me to add the bulk of the olive oil after the food was cooked for full flavor and health. She taught me how to make chickpeas meltingly tender and transform them into the best stew with only four ingredients. She taught me how to cook in order to please people—figuring out what they like and incorporating it into the dish at hand, making more than you need, and going the extra mile." continue to blog
