Description - The Futurist Cookbook by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti

One of 'the best artistic jokes of the century', this is both madcap cookbook and Futurist manifesto

Part manifesto, part artistic joke, Fillippo Marinetti's Futurist Cookbook is a provocative work about art disguised as an easy-to-read cookbook. Here are recipes for ice cream on the moon; candied atmospheric electricities; nocturnal love feasts; sculpted meats. Marinetti also sets out his argument for abolishing pasta as ill-suited to modernity, and advocates a style of cuisine that will increase creativity. Although at times betraying its author's nationalistic sympathies, The Futurist Cookbook is funny, provocative, whimsical, disdainful of sluggish traditions and delighted by the velocity and promise of modernity.

Buy The Futurist Cookbook by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
