In conjunction with the current exhibition, Lucian Freud: Portraits, the Modern welcomes Tom Parker Bowles for a celebration of classic British cuisine. Mr. Parker Bowles is an avid home cook and award-winning food writer, whose weekly column is carried by The Mail on Sunday (UK). The author of The Year of Eating Dangerously and E is For Eating, he is the food editor of British Esquire, and has also written for Tatler and a variety of other publications. The Brigadier, 2003-2004, Lucian Freud's monumental portrait of his father (he is the son of Camilla Parker Bowles, the Duchess of Cornwall, and Andrew Parker Bowles) is one of the highlights of the Modern's Freud exhibition. Mr. Parker Bowles lives in London.
Let's Eat: Recipes from my Kitchen Notebook, Mr. Parker Bowles's new book, transports you into his home with classic, comforting family recipes that he prepares in his own kitchen and for his own family, including such dishes as a classic melted egg and cheese sandwich and the more exotic Griddled Lamb with Cucumber Raita. Interspersed throughout the book are his own family stories behind many of the dishes, along with handwritten notes taken from his personal notebooks, providing an intimate backdrop to each of the recipes (not to mention a soft peek into life within the Parker Bowles home). Let's Eat: Recipes from my Kitchen Notebook will be available for purchase in the Modern Shop.
