Feasting on Art

What a fantastic premise! Megan Fizell (Feasting on Art) takes still lifes of food–paintings, illustrations, photographs–and deconstructs them to create a meal. There are usually interesting tidbits about the art, artist, and the food, as well as lovely photographs of her fare. Such an inspired idea for a recipe blog. Her most recent post takes a look at an engraved botanical, a study of pears from the early 19th century, and follows with a recipe for Pear, Goat, & Proschiutto pizza. Others are less literal, like the Coconut Milk Ice Cream with Carmelized Papaya & Lime–inspired by a Frida Kahlo’s painting, Coconut Tears.

One of my favorites is more of a recreation: her Mondrian Pound Cake, inspired by Composition No. 8.
