How would you like to dine in Van Gogh's olive orchard or in Bonnard's garden? What would be served at Mary Cassatt's afternoon tea? And a slice of which Thiebaud cake would you choose ... given the chance?
In The Artist's Table, fourteen world-renowned chefs create delectable menus inspired by masterpieces in the National Gallery of Art collections. These contemporary masters of the culinary arts are brought together with the works of great artists, and the result is a joyful celebration of art and food.
Master chefs such as Julia Child, Jeremiah Tower, and Alice Waters respond to Pissarro, Toulouse-Lautrec, Matisse, and other beloved artists, and present menus and recipes that are fresh, evocative, and accessible to the home cook. They offer a picnic, brunch, lunches, dinners, and feasts for grand occasions, with inspired recipes such as Smoked Salmon with Mixed Melon, Onion Tart, Beef Tenderloin Roasted in an Herb-Infused Salt Crust, and Chocolate Lace Wafers.
Among the 65 magnificent paintings and prints reproduced from the National Gallery of Art, ranging from the Renaissance to modern times, are works by Bellini and Titian, Chardin, Constable, Manet, Morisot, Renoir, Monet, Cézanne, Gauguin, Homer, Vuillard, Braque, and Picasso.
