Description: To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Sotheby's Cafe, Head Chef Laura Greenfield has compiled 40 recipes, organised by season and complemented by wine notes from Serena Sutcliffe, MW, head of the Sotheby's Wine department Each recipe is illustrated with either sumptuous food photography or an artwork sold in a Sotheby's auction -- ranging from Chinese porcelain to Contemporary art -- creating a visual feast for food and art lovers alike. 

Eight complementary articles exploring the relationship between food and art are interspersed throughout the book. Taking the form of conversations between Sotheby's specialists and leading experts in their fields, the articles cover such diverse topics as the cafe culture of the Impressionists; the development of the dining room; tea and porcelain from Asia to England; contemporary artists' use of food in art works; and the enduring significance of that most iconic of subjects to artists and audiences: the Last Supper. 

For many people, the pleasures derived from fine food and fine art can be equally intense, but the two are often appreciated separately. In the Sotheby's Cafe Cookbook, the centuries-old liaison between food and art and the many nuances of their relationship are newly explored, along with the culinary secrets that have satisfied so many diners at Sotheby's Cafe.
