Long before Pinterest, there was the community cookbook, an authentic collection of shared recipes that told the story of a people and a place. We cooked from dozens of our dog-eared favorites to unearth vintage recipes for today's home cook.
Much like painting and sculpting, cooking is an art form, a mastery of different flavors and textures. The collectors who assembled The High Museum of Art Recipe Collection saw this connection between food and art and used it as a way to fund a more artful Atlanta by building a new museum. In this book you’ll find galleries of recipes—from delicious portrayals of puddings and soufflés to even more Southern-inspired works, such as barbecue shrimp and cheese straws—all true masterpieces in their own right.
