ARTSY CHAOS

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Culture Bazaar -

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.
