So this is how Christmas is done right, isn’t it: You sit down at a big table with your nearest and dearest, feast without limits, drink too much, discuss and waffle on, hug each other, forgive each other one or two things that happened in the past year. Cheeks are aglow, the next course is served, the napkins are stained, the floor is covered in wrapping paper. When the last candle has burnt down, the hearts are still on fire. If you look at it that way, everyday is Christmas at Studio Olafur Eliasson. Up to 90 people sit down to eat lunch together daily at the Icelandic artist’s long table. And now, we can all be part of it. The favourite 100 vegetarian recipes have been put together in one fantastic book. On the one hand, this book makes you want to organise a gigantic room with a looooooong table for yourself and invite all your friends (the recipes are adaptable for groups of up to 60). On the other hand, this creation inspires all kinds of thoughts revolving around eating and cooking. Because ‚The Kitchen‘ is more than a cookbook. It tells the story of the studio and presents people who are passionate about culinary arts. It confronts with ideas about working and eating and shows how closely these two aspect are tied together. You can’t study on a full stomach? Fiddlesticks. The best ideas are born when we sit down to eat together!
