For any arty chefs out there, this might appeal, as who knew artist Jackson Pollock was an enthusiastic cook? Dinner With Jackson Pollock is a very lovely looking, ring-bound cookery book by luxury book publishers Assouline, which specialises in one-upmanship gorgeous-looking coffee table books. This one would definitely look stylish flung on any table in the kitchen. The recipes are American classic, nothing you haven’t seen before, but there are pretty illustrations and arty link ups with Pollocks dribble and splatter, scatter gun painting technique. A good present for someone arty and foody.
