Mexican cuisine seems to be as time-consuming as it is delicious.
They have produced a video that introduces the various recipes based on the background of life that can be obtained from the history of famous local artists. ''The Art Assignment' explores the recipes of artist Frida Kahlo, whose work celebrated Mexico's history, vivid colors, and it's FOOD. On the menu:
1) Chiles Stuffed with Cheese aka Chiles Rellenos
2) White Rice with Plantains
3) Nopales Salad
It's a simple impression of someone who saw this video:
The art cooking videos are immensely fun to make… And what I’m trying to do is reach people who aren’t necessarily outwardly into art or don’t know whether they’re into art so they’re not going to click on a video that’s strictly about art. But if you can present art ideas through a cooking tutorial perhaps they’ll be more open to it. I love to cook. And I love to think about that side of art history.
If you’re undaunted by the Frida recipes, perhaps you should proceed to Salvador Dali’s towering Bush of Crayfish in Viking herbs, or the Futurists’ highly suggestive Meat Sculpture. Other recipes come from Vincent Van Gogh and Georgia O'Keeffe.
