Vogue has released a coffee table book for readers who are as passionate about food as they are about fashion.
“Food in Vogue” is a collection of the publication’s best food photography and food writing over the years, with photos from giants like Irving Penn, Raymond Meier, James Wojcik, Tim Walker and Helmut Newton.
In line with the magazine’s editorial fashion shoots, readers can expect to find stylized, provocative photos of food and chefs, over conventional images of mouth-watering food porn.
The book features the voluminous writings of Vogue’s longtime food columnist Jeffrey Steingarten, who is credited with bringing an intellectual vigor to the art of food writing, writes Vogue executive editor Taylor Antrim.
Outside the fashion world, Steingarten is best known among general TV audiences for his appearances as a judge on “Iron Chef America”.
“His investigative rigor, his willingness to travel anywhere and eat anything, his fascination with food science, and his intellectual avidity were matched by his sense of humor and seemingly boundless hunger,” she writes.
Other contributions featured within the collection include columns from Tamar Adler, a former protégé of Alice Waters, food journalist Oliver Strand, and Rob Haskell.
“Food in Vogue” retails for $51 (over P2,500) with a limited run of 51,000 prints. JB
