In the kitchen with Pollock


It turns out that Jackson Pollock, the legendary artist best known for splattering, dripping, and throwing paint onto canvas, loved to cook, baked delectable goodies, and hosted lots of dinner-parties at his East Hampton home. 

"Dinner with Jackson Pollock features more than 50 recipes collected from handwritten pages scrawled by Jackson; his wife, artist Lee Krasner; his mother, Stella; or traded among their many friends in the town of Springs on Long Island, interspersed with Jackson's masterworks, still lifes of the Pollock-Krasner home, and beautiful photographs of each delectable recipe, plus delightful tales from Jackson and Lee's family and local friends, for a truly unique and insightful portrait of a great American artist."
