Item Description...
Georgia O'Keeffe, well known for her striking paintings of the Southwest, carried her creativity into the kitchen, where she took great pride in her healthy culinary style. The meals served in her household focused on homegrown and natural foods. They were always tasty, nutritious, modest, and beautifully prepared.

A Painter's Kitchen is Margaret Wood's recollection of seventy recipes from Georgia O'Keeffe's kitchen. As Miss O'Keeffe's companion for five years, Wood's responsibilities included, among other things, preparing many of the meals. O'Keeffe directed Miss Wood in the preparation of simple, delicious food using many fresh ingredients and insisted that Wood pay scrupulous attention to every step of food production and preparation. Besides containing recipes from Miss O'Keeffe's kitchen, the book describes in charming detail Miss O'Keeffe's outlook on food, philosophy, life, art, and the world, while maintaining respect for the artist's well-known desire for privacy.

Margaret Wood left Miss O'Keeffe's employ in 1982. She was a production weaver for Kozikowski Tapestry Weavers and since 1988 has been a speech/language pathologist.

"Lavishly sprinkled with black-and-white photographs of the artist as well as full-color food photos, "A Painter's Kitchen" is a feast for the eyes as well as the mind and stomach."-Mail Order Gourmet

"More than just a cookbook, this text describes O'Keeffe's outlook on life and art in 128 pages."-Southwest Art

"Here is a way of cooking and eating serene in accumulated wisdom (Miss O'Keeffe was in her nineties at the time the author knew her) and rich in undiminished sensual delight."-Cook Book

Sample Recipe:
During the 1960s and 1970s, many prominent magazines featured interviews with Georgia O'Keeffe, along with photographs of both her houses. During supper one evening she recalled the occasion when a female staff member from one of the magazines had come to the Abiquiu house and was straightening everything up so meticulously that it no longer looked like the painter's house. At one point, when the woman was making every curtain pleat perfect, Miss O'Keeffe could not resist saying to her,

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderful cookbook  Dec 12, 2007
As others here have said, this is a very easy to follow cookbook and with a renewed focus of late on healthy eating, eating locally, and simplicity, this would make a great addition to anyone's kitchen. It's also a terrific primer for those interested in Southwestern cuisine, particularly New Mexican food. I looked for a good recipe for green chile sauce for a long time and now rely on this book for that as well as for enchiladas and others.
 
O'Keeffe lovers should like this book a lot  Mar 3, 2006
As a fan of Ms. O'Keeffe's since the seventies and even more so once the late Ansel Adams befriended our young son in the eighties, I wanted this cook book because I loved the simplicity of her art work and wanted to see if this carried over into her food choices. Am not disappointed.

Yes, many of the recipes are simple and direct like corn on the bob or kale. But the recipes for Fried Flowers (locust blossoms), Curried Chicken, Biscochitos, and Zabaglione are wonderful. Even wonder if she ever had squash blooms tempura style.

The book is a fun read as well, since the Introduction allows us to learn why she liked certain foods, disliked eating out, what she grew in her large vegetable gardens and how her kitchens were laid out and what they had in them.
 
Bogus reviews, one and all!  Nov 16, 2003
Yeah, right. Have you ever seen such bogus drivel as the fake reviews posted here by the publisher?
 
A very lovely cookbook full of recipes for delicious dishes.  Sep 22, 1998
This exciting cookbook presents a sampling of the artist's Georgia O'Keefe's favorites dishes. The author worked for Ms. O'Keefe for several years. The recipes are not complicated. I have made several of the dishes and all have been delicious! I highly recommend this book! Doug Moring
 
Simple, natural and delightful.  Apr 24, 1997
Lavishly sprinkled with black-and-white photographs of the artist as well as full-color food photos, A Painter's Kitchen is a feast for the eyes as well as the mind and the stomach. MAIL ORDER GOURMET
