Overview

"Donna R. Barnes and Peter G. Rose provide a narrative to accompany this collection of Dutch art as it relates to images of food and drink. The sixty paintings presented in this volume are discussed individually from both an art history and a culinary history perspective, including authentic period recipes. An accompanying cookbook adapts these recipes for the modern kitchen." Drawn exclusively from American museums, art galleries, and private collections, the works of art portray still lifes, Dutch tavern and market scenes, and festive occasions by forty-five Dutch artists such as well-known painters Jan Steen, Adriaen van Ostade, and Pieter Claesz, and their less famous contemporaries such as Quiringh Gerritsz. van Brekelenkam and Harmen van Steenwijck.
