Mina Stone – Cooking for Artists

Chef Mina Stone has been producing private dinners for the New York art world since 2006, and cooking delicious lunches at Urs Fischer’s Brooklyn-based art studio for years.

In her aptly named cookbook, Stone presents over 70 of her fresh, simple, family-style recipes — inspired by her Greek heritage, it’s a celebration of her love of fresh, seasonal food.

Sharp design by Fischer himself is accompanied by exquisite photographs and drawings by Hope Atherton, Darren Bader, Matthew Barney, Alex Eagleton, 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.

This is the sort of cookbook that’s equally at home in the kitchen and the library, as useful as it is a pleasure to read.
