Cookbook by Yves M. Larocque and Mónica Márquez about to be launched

We just finished our fall art workshop in Tuscany and had a great time with our group of artists of all levels from Canada, Colombia, South Africa and the United States. We painted in beautiful spots in the Val di Chiana and the Val d’Orcia, learned about different art history and art theory topics, reflected on our personal artistic paths, enjoyed delicious meals and wines of the region and shared interesting discussions about art and life within an intimate and fun environment. No wonder many lifelong friendships are born in these workshops.

And this time again, our participants underlined the originality and tastiness of our meals. We were happy to tell everyone that all our recipes derive from our own method of cooking based on color harmonies. Ten years ago, here in Tuscany, we decided to write a recipe book but with so many good cookbooks in the market, we needed to propose a new idea. We had to find a modus operandi close to who we are and what we do as visual artists. The answer was in front of us and painting gave it to us: art and color! Why not applying color theory to our dishes in the same way we did to our paintings? So, we decided to develop an innovative method of cooking based on a wise combination of colors. After confirming that nothing had been written on the topic, we started our project and finally it is ready. The book surpassed our initial design. It is a concept book, a beautiful book on art, art history and food. Read more at: https://theartistswayofcooking.com/
