Published by Skira Paris. By Yves Pinard. Foreword by Paul Bocuse.
With a foreword by Michelin three-star chef Paul Bocuse, this beautifully illustrated volume celebrates culinary-themed artwork with insightful text and recipes by the Grand Louvre’s chef Yves Pinard. A vital element of daily life and one of the great pleasures of the world, food in all its guises has been exalted in works of art for centuries. With a foreword by Paul Bocuse, this volume serves up a smorgasbord of culinary-themed art—from fruit baskets to sumptuous banquet scenes to images of the hunt and still-life paintings. Yves Pinard, head chef of the Grand Louvre restaurant, provides animated commentary of forty works from the renowned museum and includes a sampling of his own recipes inspired by the paintings. Details from masterpieces such as Chardin’s jar of olives and Delacroix’s succulent lobsters are complemented by opulent feasts presented against the backdrop of lavish interiors or a simple peasant meal in the countryside. From ancient Greek and Egyptian carvings to nineteenth-century oil paintings, each work is accompanied by a concise text illuminating its historical and cultural context, delivered in a lighthearted and playful tone.
Paul Bocuse has been awarded three Michelin stars continuously since 1965. He is the author of many books, including Bocuse in Your Kitchen (Flammarion, 2008). Yves Pinard is head chef at the Grand Louvre at the Louvre. He is a member of l’Académie Culinaire de France and author of several books on the relationship between art and food.
Published by The Drawing Center. Text by Richard Hamilton. Interview by Brett Littman.
This publication accompanies the first major museum exhibition in the world to focus on the visualization and drawing practices of master chef Ferran Adrià. His complex body of work positions the drawing medium as both a philosophical tool--used to organize and convey knowledge, meaning and signification--as well as a physical object--used to synthesize over twenty years of innovation within the kitchen. Emphasizing the role of drawing in Adrià’s quest to understand creativity, the book features an interview between Ferran Adrià and Brett Littman, and also includes a reprint of the artist Richard Hamilton’s essay about the relationship of food to contemporary art and Adrià’s participation in Documenta 12 that first appeared in Food for Thought: Thought for Food (2009).
