Anyone who gardens, cooks, or loves to eat as much as I do cannot help but marvel at the diversity and elegance of our foods.

In this book I have attempted to do what Picasso said good art should strive to do: Show us something we have never seen before, or show us something we have seen many times in a way that makes it seem we have never seen it before.

Artists call the phenomenon of seeing humanity in the objects around us "equivalence", so if we see a bit of ourselves on these pages, then perhaps this book helps prove the aphorism "we are what we eat".


About the Author

Craig Goldwyn
goldwyn Brookfield, IL, US

I was born into art and food. Mom was a commercial artist and she taught me to draw and paint. Dad got his degree in food technology and held jobs from USDA inspector to restaurateur.

I was awarded the first Masters Degree in Art and Technology in the world from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1977. My first one-man show debuted in 1983 at the Robert Mondavi Winery in Napa Valley, and my images have appeared in numerous publications. I am a member of John Paul Caponigro's "Next Step" group of image makers.

As a writer, I have published hundreds of articles about food and drink in the Washington Post and Chicago Tribune, and as an educator I have taught at the Cornell School of Hotel Administration and Le Cordon Bleu in Chicago. My barbecue website,, is very popular.

You will never look at food in the same way again! This book houses images of food that will inspire you to cook something new every time you look at it! You will also never look at the grocery store produce section the same. Bon Appetite!
