The Artist Cookbook Vol. 2 >>> Book Launch
edited by Carrie Perreault

The Artist Cookbooks started in the winter of 2019 when Carrie Perreault emailed artists from across so-called Canada and asked them to share a favourite recipe with her. Perreault’s kitchen skills were subpar, but she developed her culinary competence through their guidance, thoughtfulness and humor. The results of this effort were The Artist Cookbook Vol. 1, with 58 recipes from 52 artists. In the winter of 2021, Perreault reached out to some of her favourite artists again and here is Vol. 2, with 51 recipes from 49 more artists.

The vegetarian recipes that makeup Vol.2 still respect an entry-level skill set, but you won’t be disappointed by the simple complexities they bring to the table. Along with needing a stockpile of eggs, flour, butter and mozzarella, which showed up as key ingredients, the approach of using what you have and the desire to enjoy small indulgences is also present.

In addition to the recipes, the artists also contributed by making a drawing on a dinner or side plate. These plates are being auctioned off online with the proceeds to benefit FoodShare on November 21 and 28th. The work that that organization undertakes in communities across Tkaronto/ Toronto is both critical and urgent. More on that soon! But while in wait… you can preview the drawings on the plates.
