Uncovering the history and stories behind food on canvas

Before photography, only paintings reveal what and how we used to eat. Uncovering the history and stories behind food on canvas, Eating Art bridges the world of the visual and culinary arts, travelling across Europe and North America on the trail of history’s most prolific food paintings and artists.

Celebrated restaurateur and art collector Oliver Peyton explores the symbolism and significance of foods that artists chose to depict; visits artists’ homes where the ingredients were produced; and discovers how food was cooked at the time. Then in the kitchens of some of the best restaurants on the planet, the world’s greatest chefs bring the gastronomic artworks to life, taking inspiration from the paintings to create their own masterpiece on a plate.
