Le Corbuffet: Edible Art and Design Classics
'a brilliantly bonkers book that combines architecture, sculpture, design and recipes' -Homes & Interiors Scotland
A playful collection of recipes inspired by artists and designers
It started as a series of dinner parties that Esther Choi-artist, architectural historian, and self-taught cook-hosted for friends after she stumbled across an elaborate menu crafted for Walter Gropius in 1937. Combining a curiosity about art and design with a deeply felt love of cooking, Choi has assembled a playful collection of recipes that are sure to spark conversation over the dinner table. Featuring Choi's own spectacular photography, these sixty recipes riff off famous artists or architects and the works they are known for.
Try Quiche Haring with the Frida Kale-o Salad, or the Robert Rauschenburger followed by Flan Flavin. This cookbook is strikingly beautiful and provocative as it blurs the boundaries between art and everyday life and celebrates food in an engaging and imaginative way.
