Overview

Living and Eating is about enriching the experience of life by paring it down to what is essential. The intention is to narrow the gap between how we eat on a daily basis and how we entertain, recognizing that the most relaxed form of entertaining is simply inviting people to join you at your table. The earthy, elegant recipes make preparing lunch for friends or dinner after work into a restful, rewarding experience -- and a delicious one, at that. Dishes like char-grilled zucchini with pine nuts, butter roasted herbed chicken, and apple cake with Calvados cream embody the principle of simple good taste.

Architect and designer John Pawson is renowned for his calm, uncluttered, flawless spaces. Together with food writer Annie Bell, he brings his philosophy of minimalism to the kitchen. The book is more than a conventional collection of recipes -- it explores the entire context in which food is enjoyed, offering suggestions for the plates we eat from, the glasses we drink out of, the equipment we use, and the kitchen in which we cook.

Exquisitely designed and photographed in John Pawson's extraordinary London home, Living and Eating is a seductive guide to a richly satisfying time in the kitchen. Set against our increasingly hectic lives, this celebration of simplicity and flavor will strike a chord with anyone looking for a calmer, better way to live and eat.
