Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0789312972, Paperback)

Ever notice the way a school of dome-shaped jellyfish floating in water looks like wild mushroom soup? Or the way a creamy, cratered moon can look like a crispy pita just waiting to be dunked into a swirl of hummus? If you haven’t, let Art and Cook open you to a disconcertingly fresh and strange world of correlations. Packaged appropriately in an egg carton, this quirky book serves up art the way it does food―in an eccentric, engaging, and witty manner.
Inspired by Dadaist and Surrealist ideals, Art and Cook aims to “fuse together conscious and unconscious realms of experience so completely, joining the everyday rational world in an absolute reality, a surreality.” It melds pop art and food to create original works of art that do what any good art intends to: explore new territory, cause controversy, and make people think differently about how we consume food and about the world around them. Art and Cook is not your ordinary cookbook, but it is a totally satisfying and fulfilling experience.
"Art and Cook is an ambitious new book that is anything but plain and boring." ―John Hylan, The New York Times
"Established itself as a seasoned most provocative cookbook." ―Linda Hales, The Washington Post
"This is just ahead of its time." ―Sylvia Carter, Newsday
