A new cookbook focused on Georgia O’Keeffe explores her artistic palette alongside her culinary palate.
The New Mexico landscape served as O'Keeffe's preferred home for the second half of her long life, and her homes in Ghost Ranch and Abiquiú were elements in her creative process, from the kitchen to the garden and beyond.
Fifty recipes collected from the artist's well-used cookbooks which include her handwritten notes, and recipes prepared for her by cooks and caretakers, comprise Robyn Lea's Dinner with Georgia O’Keeffe: Recipes, Art, Landscape.
O'Keeffe favored fresh local and traditional ingredients long before the slow food movement. Anecdotes about the artist and the lengths she took for her food and art are served up with insight into her daily living.
