PELLERIN, Ananda (ed.)
Cooking with Scorsese and Others #1

A visual essay on the role of food, recipes, and cooking scenes, in films such as Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas, Jûzô Itami’s Tampopo, or Gabriel Axel’s Babette’s Feast

Iron-cooked ham and cheese sandwiches, cailles en sarcophagi, explosive pissing beef balls; low, high, accessible, obscure, comical – food, like art, is served up in various guises, but whatever form it takes, it shares the common traits of being a stimulant as well as a necessity for living. Food and art also share a common space at the heart of Hato’s practice. Each day they serve up a communal afternoon meal, creating an opportunity to down tools and enjoy the moment. Now, with this book – a black- and-white trailer for a full colour feature to be published soon – they welcome you to join in this homage to both food, and to films that celebrate eating in all sorts of compelling ways.
