Chef Mina Stone has been cooking delicious lunches at Urs Fischer's Brooklyn-based art studio for the past five years and producing private gallery dinners in the New York art world since 2006. Cooking for Artists presents more than 70 of Stone's family-style recipes inspired by her Greek heritage and her love of simple, fresh, seasonal food. The book is designed by Fischer and includes drawings by Hope Atherton, Darren Bader, Matthew Barney, Alex Eagleton, Urs Fischer, Cassandra MacLeod, Elizabeth Peyton, Rob Pruitt, Peter Regli, Josh Smith, Spencer Sweeney and Philippos Theodorides--all members of the community of artists that delights in Stone's cooking.
Below is an excerpt from the author:
"My food is inspired by Greece, by different colors and textures, by people and experiences. Food should be balanced, the components of the menu working in harmony together from starters to desert. Food should be beautiful, and should make you feel healthy and happy when the meal is done."
