In this volume, thirty-one works of art whose essential image is food have been brought together - they come from many cultures, all over the world. Twenty-nine of the paintings are placed opposite superb photos - all reproduced in splendid color - of related foods. The paintings and the photographs work together to introduce and illustrate more than three hundred recipes, all representative of the best of twentieth-century cooking in America.
