Digesting Recipes: The Art of Culinary Notation scrutinises the form of the recipe, using it as a means to explore a multitude of subjects in post-war Western art and culture, including industrial mass-production, consumerism, hidden labour, and art engaged with the everyday. Each chapter is presented as a dish in a nine-course meal, drawing on examples from published cookbooks and the work of artists such as Alison Knowles, Yoko Ono, Annette Messager, Martha Rosler, Barbara T. Smith, Bobby Baker and Mika Rottenberg. A recipe is an instruction, the imperative tone of the expert, but this constraint can offer its own kind of potential. A recipe need not be a domestic trap but might instead offer escape – something to fantasise about or aspire to. It can hold a promise of transformation both actual and metaphorical. It can be a proposal for action, or envision a possible future.
This book features 50 projects, each showcasing at least one different technique; to assist readers to create beautiful cookie creations for all occasions. The projects are grouped according to the icing ingredient used to decorate the cookie, and include a key to indicate the skill level required to complete the project. This book includes simple but impressive designs, such as elegant cookies piped with royal icing, to the more complicated and unusual 3D cookie sculptures! There are also feature spreads that provide a handful of quick and easy cookies to make in moments, with the step-by-step guides making recipes easy to understand. The projects have been designed to suit readers of all skill levels and the beautiful photography of the finished cookies will serve as a design resource for experienced decorators.
