Dinner with Jackson Pollock
Featuring recipes collected from handwritten pages scrawled by Lee, Jackson, his mother, Stella, traded among their many friends in the town of Springs on Long Island, and gleaned from well-worn newspaper clippings tucked into their cookbooks and recipe files, Dinner with Jackson Pollock is a seamless blend of the fresh local ingredients Jackson and Lee grew and cooked, and the nature that influenced their art.
From starters and entrees to side dishes, breads, and desserts, more than 50 tried-and-true favourites include Stella’s Potato Pancakes, Perle Fine’s Bouillabaisse, Jackson’s Classic Rye Bread, Jackson’s Famous Spaghetti Sauce, Jackson’s Prize-Winning Apple Pie, Elaine de Kooning’s Fruit & Grain Salad, and Rita Benton’s Pecan Torte with Mocha Frosting.
Interspersed with Jackson’s masterworks and family photo album snapshots, this deeply researched volume also includes a preface by Jackson’s niece Francesca Pollock, and a foreword by Helen Harrison, director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center. Dinner with Jackson Pollock is an insightful portrait of Pollock.
