Part coffee table book, part travel log, this visually delicious, delectably readable cookbook pays tribute to what may be the world’s most important treasure: fresh, locally grown food.
“Canvas and Cuisine: The Art of the Fresh Market” is a passport, inviting you to visualize the Italian seaside town of Positano where merchants offer baskets of produce featuring locally grown vegetables. The burst of color and depth of texture shows a zest for life. Home cooks feel the same way as the painter, plating meals for the people they love. The foodie consumes, the artist memorializes; and in this book, they come together as one hungry entity looking to be sated.
“Canvas and Cuisine” ensnares the senses of both the cook and the artist. We take gorgeous food, chat about its use in native cuisine and then bring it to the home cook’s kitchen. Open this book and you’ll see a basket of potatoes in a Madrid open-air market that inspires Patatas Bravas, a tapas dish with a kicked-up spicy sauce. You’ll see a painting of crates holding indigo-hued eggplants that inspires a dish of Vietnamese stew. You’ll see a bustling square reminiscent of London’s Borough market that inspires a dish of English cheddar, apple and sausage stuffed acorn squash.
The authors of “Canvas and Cuisine” know this truth: beauty of different cultures come through best in their native foods. At first glance, some of the recipes in this cookbook’s pages seem exotic – but make no mistake; these foods are simply local and fresh, and they easily find their way into your kitchen. “Canvas and Cuisine” illustrates how to make the looking and the gathering of ingredients fun – an activity that brings family and friends together.
