Pesto by Rikki AsherRego Park, New York, US
I love pine nuts! The only problem is they can be expensive. One reason they are so costly is due to shortages and harsh weather changes, which effect pine trees. In a pinch: Use shelled, unsalted pistachio nuts, or chopped walnuts as alternatives. Pesto is traditionally served as a sauce with pasta. It is also delicious on potatoes, rice, couscous, or spread on a piece of crunchy bread.
Food Geometry | In thinking about the geometry of food, I needed to look no further than my garden, ripe with all the makings for a grilled pizza: tomatoes, chives, basil & oregano. As a letterpress printer I like experimenting with forms, and pressure printing is a wonderful way to capture the details in plants. I arranged the leaves of the ingredients on my Vandercook 4 press, inked them up, layed cotton paper over top, and rolled the carriage down the press bed to impress the images into the page. The tomatoes were a beautifully explosive disaster, so I gave myself permission to print circles instead. I then went back & printed the tomato leaves overtop the red circles; the perfect final touch. As I printed the aromatic oils were released from the leaves, making my mouth water. The hand lettering was done with a fountain pen, rather than wood or metal type, to capture the spontaneity and ease of my new favorite late-summer meal.
The food with the most elegant of geometry. It comes in squares, triangles, circles, and toruses (bagel 'zas). This piece illustrates the mathematical beauty of pizza in all its form, from the ingredients up.
I love anything Thai, so a refreshing Thai basil sangria for the summer is definitely a double win! The porthole was created as an aesthetic idea for people to be able to see the nicely arranged ingredients of their cocktail, as the servers in a bar/restaurant are pouring their drinks out through its spout.
Jelly needs a day off. Sure, PB&J sandwiches are a staple, but isn't it time to give jelly the break it deserves?
