Georgia O’Keeffe chose New Mexico as the vibrant backdrop for the second half of her boundlessly creative life. She purchased homes in Ghost Ranch and Abiquiú, designing and refinishing them with special emphasis on the kitchen and garden spaces that would prove to be integral to her artistic process. For O’Keeffe, food was elevated to an art form, both as a frequent subject in her work, and in its preparation and consumption. Food was also used as the primary tool in the artist’s life to promote health and well-being. Featuring recipes collected from O’Keeffe’s preferred cookbooks with her handwritten notes, and prepared for her by cooks and caretakers including Christine Taylor Patten and Margaret Wood, Dinner with Georgia O’Keeffe balances the fresh local and traditional ingredients the artist sought and the New Mexican landscape and culture that constantly influenced both her art and sense of self. From soups and main courses to vegetable dishes and breads to sweet treats and drinks, fifty of O’Keeffe’s favorites are presented here in this beautiful book by Assouline. Punctuated by O’Keeffe’s artworks and archival images of her years in New Mexico, this volume also includes a preface by Christine Taylor Patten, one of the artist’s caretakers in her later life. Dinner with Georgia O’Keeffe is a singular portrait of the artist and a unique taste of the American Southwest.
