Full Description

“I went to Noma and interviewed René (Redzepi). We were talking about art and food but the restaurant was closed. Everybody asked me how was the food, what did you eat – and he basically gave me some marmite. The best marmite I’ve ever had.”David Shrigley

“This is not a coffee table book….notions of ‘taste’ get a grilling, while there are some fruity artist interviews….that make for entertaining accompaniments.”Melanie Gerlis, The Financial Times

“This comprehensive and expansive explorations of art restaurants marries the nourishment of senses, both visual and taste, along with the meeting of minds.” – Chris Corbin, Corbin and King group
