Two unrivaled masters of the Epicurean arts, Julia Child and Robert Mondavi, champion an A-list of scholars and philosophers, poets and painters to bring to life these two gorgeous volumes which are consumption's final and definitive sensory resource. These books are not simply the illustrated anatomy of food and wine's hard parts, but rather their ethereal, poetic center. And, in a country of competing food and drink neuroses, they are sensual self-help books.
When you crack the binding and pull back the cover of Volume I, Giuseppe Arcimboldo's famous painting of a man comprised entirely of strategically placed fruits and vegetables stares out at you with black olive eyes. At a distance it looks like an admirable painting of a man's profile, but as you approach, the apple appears in the round cheek, a lumpy russet swaps with the nose and a toupee of grapes double for tight curls of hair. That you are wholly what you eat is the essential point of both books. What you take into your body and how, designs the rest of you, so it is best to be conversant with the ins and outs of your own body and soul.
Wine, Food & the Arts, Volume I and II are like no other books on the subject. They are a literary repertoire of art, poetry, photography, essays and articles about happy, healthy consumption which was collected by The American Institute of Wine & Food. To the high-order hedonist, these books are indispensable.
