Giovanna Garzoni - Lemon Risotto with Homemade Stock

Giovanna Garzoni – Lemon Risotto with Homemade Stock

I know that this is only my eighth recipe here on Feasting on Art and like the lemon & orange ice cream this risotto has a focus on citrus flavors. If you are familiar with still life paintings then you will know that the majority of them will feature a lemon somewhere on the canvas....
Osias Beert - Vlaai with Berry Compote

Osias Beert – Vlaai with Berry Compote

Have you ever just had one of those days? Well for me, today is one of those days and this still life was one problem after another. While shopping for ingredients I was convinced that the painting depicted cranberries (which in my defense they do look like) but I arrived home to realize that they...
Juan Sánchez Cotán – Spanish Curtido with Pickled Melon

Juan Sánchez Cotán – Spanish Curtido with Pickled Melon

This still life was requested by Liz at Zested and what a challenge it ended up being!! I had a very hard time figuring out how to work the cabbage into a recipe with the melon (not to mention stringing up the quince and cabbage for a photo!). I finally decided that although I like...
Frida Kahlo – Pico de Gallo

Frida Kahlo – Pico de Gallo

I have always been drawn to Frida Kahlo’s work but it was the trip to Mexico City with my History of Art peers that really solidified my adoration. After visiting the space where she worked and her paintings in the Mueso de Art Moderno I couldn’t stop thinking about her art. The colours and textures...
Édouard Manet – Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce

Édouard Manet – Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce

For this post we are back to France and on to another artist. I love art but if I had to declare my love for one artist in particular it would be Édouard Manet. In my undergraduate course I did my entire postseminar work on his still life painting Fish (which should give you some indication...
Raphaelle Peale - Orange & Lemon Ice Cream

Raphaelle Peale – Orange & Lemon Ice Cream

I can’t stand passing up a good bargain and last week lemons were on sale. Like my carrots from my previous post the lemons were beginning to look a bit tired. They had sat prettily in my shell shaped bowl on my counter with only one being sacrificed for a tangy lemon vinaigrette. I will...
William Merritt Chase – Pickled Pepper Carrot

William Merritt Chase – Pickled Pepper Carrot

This week is a special week because normally I would only post on Mondays (but I am enjoying this blog so much that it might happen more often). I am off from work because I have been hobbling around on crutches due to a fall on Saturday night. This morning I found some carrots languishing...
Paul Cézanne – Cherry & Nectarine Clafoutis

Paul Cézanne – Cherry & Nectarine Clafoutis

The first post is always the hardest. I wanted to find a painting/recipe that really represented me and the things I love to set the whole tone for the rest of the blog. I knew I wanted something French because I have been on a French kick lately and something with stone fruit. We are...
Welcome to Feasting on Art

Welcome to Feasting on Art

Hello and welcome to yet another food blog!! Everyone on the internet seems to have taken to the web to write about their kitchen exploits and I am no different except that each Monday I will be cooking a new painting! What’s that you say?? Cooking art? Pierre Auguste Renoir, Melon and Tomatoes, 1903 oil...
