In 1945, Jackson Pollock and his wife Lee Krasner moved to Springs, New York, and began hosting dinner parties for patrons such as Peggy Guggenheim; they soon became a culinary attraction. A new book reproduces the recipes they
collected, together with snapshots of Pollock’s art. Revealed is the couple’s love of nature: from the catch of the day to Long Island potatoes. Among the gems is a recipe for cherrystone clams with vermouth, cheekily penned on a prescription note from the doctor
treating Pollock for alcoholism.
