Great coffee table book for the art lover or gourmet!
Subtitled "A Cookbook by Master Chefs Inspired by Paintings in the National Gallery of Art," this is the 1995 first edition: a 144-page hardback featuring 65 gorgeous artworks and the recipes they led top chefs to create.
Imagine yourself having lunch in Bonnard's or Pissarro's garden -- on a picnic with Toulouse-Lautrec -- at a tea party with Mary Cassatt -- or dining in Tangier with Matisse. The menus and recipes are by such culinary notables as Julia Child, Alice Waters and Rick Bayless. There's even a Renaissance feast by Lorenza de'Medici, designed to honor her oft-painted forebears.
Condition of this remarkable book is very good, showing only minor wear to the dust cover. The original $28 price tag appears on the back. Contents are clean and tight, with no inscriptions. It was published by Collins in San Francisco and has long been out of print.
There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping, with an equivalent discount on international delivery, and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
