In the spirit of our love for food and upcomingModern Art Cookbook: Art and Food Series Event, we thought we’d share this berrylicious image of A Carload of Mammoth Strawberries and hope that it inspires you to take part in our NYPL Food Challenge! We are asking our followers to step into their kitchens and have some fun using David Hockney’s Strawberry Cake recipe (as seen above). Be sure to post your final results on your Tumblr page and share them with us here at NYPL by using #NYPLFoodChallenge. We can’t wait to see your strawberry cakes and hope you enjoy!
Also, join us at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on Wednesday, February 26th as author and food historian Andrew F. Smith,poet and cultural critic Wayne Koestenbaum, and author and art historian Mary Ann Caws come together for a conversation centering on the newly published The Modern Art Cookbook. We will be giving away a free copy of The Modern Cookbook to the first person that attends our Art & Food Series and asks a question to our guest speakers during the Q&A portion of the event. Be sure to mention our Tumblr post!
