This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Fourth in the wonderful series On the Table founded and edited by Charlotte Birnbaum, The Futurist Cookbook is a manifesto-as-culinary-innovation. Written in 1932 by founder of Futurism F. T. Marinetti and his collaborator Fillia--"like all the arts, it excludes plagiarism and demands creative originality. It is no accident that this work is being published in the midst of a world financial crisis, the development and outcome of which apparently cannot be determined; what can be determined, however, is the dangerous and dispiriting panic it engenders. This panic we counter with a Futurist cuisine: in other words, optimism at the table." Replete with experimental recipes, this book is a multilayered exploration of cultural metabolisms-- with the dining table as its centerpiece, of course! Brilliantly illustrated by Jan Kietala and translated by Barbara McGilvray.
