Bowl of Olives : On Food and Memory, Hardback Book

Bowl of Olives : On Food and Memory Hardback

Description

From the author of the international bestseller In and Out of the Garden and the wondrous sketchbook Sara Midda's South of France comes a long-awaited treasure of a book.

Drawn from the artist's wealth of impressions and memories, it is a book for lovers of food and art and fine gift books a book for anyone who, upon arriving in a new town, seeks first the local market, or who believes the best thing to do on a given night is to share a table with friends.

Sara Midda is a watercolourist whose delicate and beautiful paintings shine like jewels, evoking the sweet purple taste of a summer raspberry or the silvery greens and gnarled burnt umber of an olive grove. And she is also a collagist, weaving together photographs, line drawings, her personal swatches all the hues of a spice cabinet, or the sensations of a picnic, the colors of the breeze, sunshine, laughter, the cooling grass. And a poet, in love with words that sing, like podding and wicker, nettle and snug.

By turns reverent and playful, A Bowl of Olives is a work of pure enchantment, celebrating food of the seasons, of family, of travel and memory.

It is as richly layered as a favorite meal. The book is cloth-bound, jacketed, and printed on uncoated stock to convey the feeling of an artist s sketchbook."
