Art and Cook

We are the makers of Art and Cook, the 2004 bestseller that re-imagined the cookbook as a meditation on life, culture and artistry rather than a mere manual of recipes. From the start, Allan Ben has sought to invent and motivate, to sweep away all notions of time spent in the kitchen as drudgery; nothing less, in fact, than to explore the Zen of food preparation. Art and Cook is a marriage: of function to form, style to quality, and innovation to inspiration.
