When You Are Tired Of Banana Bread, Art History Can Inspire
Because now is the perfect time to get in the kitchen
Gorgeous Listicles 16 Apr 2020

It seems like everyone is re-discovering their kitchens right now. Gone are the days of dinners and take-aways, as we all have plenty of time to cook meals from scratch. And, while the internet’s bake of choice seems to be banana bread, we thought we’d push you to try something a little more extravagant. So, here’s a round-up of some top culinary inspo from art history!

Begin The Day Georg Flegel Style


As they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and you definitely have time to cook up something tasty right now. What could be better than eggs sunny-side-up with a good hunk of bread a la Georg Flegel?

Get Baking A La Wayne Thiebaud


While we’re all feeling a little confused, a little comfort goes a long way, and what could be more comforting than cake? Wayne Thiebaud is famous for his depictions of baked good, and we can certainly see why…

Stick To The Basics Like Chloe Wise


Not a cook? No worries! A few choice pairings will make the perfect quarantine meal. Just take a cue from Chloe Wise: fruit and cheese, yum!

Turn Food Into Art A La Laila Gohar


While we recognise that very few people could manage to make shrimp look like a wedding cake, we’re all about advocating for people to stretch themselves. Now is the perfect time to be avant garde with your food presentation, go wild!

Make Like Lana And Take Inspo From Norman Rockwell


Art girl fave Lana Del Rey named her latest album after American artist Norman Rockwell, so why not take inspo from a classic? Diet’s are boring! Go for something extravagant like this hungry chef, you only live once!

Cook The Classics Like Roy Lichtenstein


A roast dinner is the ultimate feel good meal. Why not cook a turkey for yourself and those you are quarantining with? You’ll be sure to be the most popular person in your house after this.

Go For Pastry A La Ralph Goings


Who doesn’t like doughnuts?! That’s right, no one! Why not attempt to make some fried dough, it’s bound to be delicious!

Level Up Like Farah Al Qasimi


Farah Al Qasimi is most famous for her photography skills, but she is also a seriously impressive baker. If you have a lot of time and patience on your hands, why not try crafting some magic like this? 10 points to anyone who manages to make anything remotely similar to this creation.
