This seminar focuses on the interplay of art and cuisine in Renaissance Italy, offering a feast for eye and palate. Spurred by humanistic ideals and an increasing appetite for luxury, both artists and cooks responded to society’s spiritual and material desires. Cooks created extravagant menus for feasts and banquets and occasionally produced edible table decorations imitating actual works of art, while artists depicted food in still-life paintings and in secular and sacred scenes.
