For inspiration, we turn to the California Artists Cookbook (Abbeville Press, 1982), an oddly beautiful collection of artists’ recipes—Ansel Adams’ sorrel soup, Wayne Thiebaud’s spaghetti with mizithra—and food-centric artwork like Thiebaud’s iconic paintings of cakes, Mark Adams’ luminous watercolors of vegetables, and a photo of a plate from Judy Chicago’s famous “Dinner Party” installation.
