Charels Roux made a series of photo’s based on different food scenes in literature. Meals from “Oliver Twist” (Charles Dickens), “Carrie” (Stephen King), “The Catcher in the Rye” (David Jerome Salinger), “Remembrance of Things Past” (Marcel Proust) and much more have been visualized by Mr Roux. e guess this goes a step further than your average food photography, what a great idea! Charles Roux also turned these photographs into his own book: Fictitious Feasts and exibited at the FoodPhotoFestival, in May 2017 at Vejle, Denmark.
From ‘Fictitious Feasts’, work about food scenes in literature. Here the three porridges bowls from the German tale “Goldilocks and the Three Bears “(Goldlöckchen und die drei Bären) by Jacob and Wilhem Grimm. (image courtesy of Charles Roux) Continue reading →
Taschen publishers strike again! This year they re-published Dali’s cookbook ‘Les diners de Gala’ which was first published in 1973.
Dali’s cookbook has 136 recipes, some illustrated by Mr. Dalí himself. All these recipes are cuisine of the old school, with recipes by leading French chefs from restaurants as Lasserre, La Tour d’Argent, Maxim’s, and Le Train Bleu. So: let’s return to the Seventies and dress the roast with frilly socks, like the photo in the book suggests. Needless to say we, at Mimi Berlin, feel that this book is proper Christmas gift. If you’re not a fan of Dali try to find a copy of ‘In cucina con amore’ (1971) a cookbook by Sophia Loren; which has been re-published in several languages as well, it’s also an always-okay-gift for sure.
