Delicious Brain Healthy Cuisine

I’ve told you about the recipe booklet, yes?   Eleven Chefs are generously contributing delicious, brain healthy recipes that reflect the principles of the Mediterranean Diet – oily fish, fruit, vegetables, unrefined cereals and olive oil, and low levels of red meat and sugar.

I’m one of those people who read cookbooks for fun.  So you can imagine how much fun I am having now as I look for the paintings that will accompany the recipes.  It’s best of both worlds.

Take a look…

Jane Eggers glorious deconstruction of a fish for Jacques Pepin’s White Bean and Sardine Toasts.

Gloria Kinney’s flying fish for Gene S. Cunningham, Executive Chef of Mirabella Seattle’s Olive Oil Poached Salmon with Bulgur Wheat and Crisp Mediterranean Salad.

I’m searching for paintings of lemons for Chef Madison Cowan’s Mediterranean Meyer Lemon-Olive Oil Cake and shrimp and eggplant for Caprial Pence’s  Grilled Eggplant with Harissa Sautéed Shrimp and Creamy Yogurt Cucumber and Couscous with Preserved Lemons, Mint and Basil

And I really must find recipes for these:

Jane Kippenhan’s pumpkin

or Mom’s

This electric banana

Peaches

Mom’s Zucchini

See what I mean?

The recipe booklet will be available in November with all proceeds to benefit The Art of Alzheimer’s free art exhibits and programs.

Stay tuned!
