What have you done this weekend, people? Partied at the pool? Ate too much at barbecues? Whipped something up for party guests? Slept in? While you were doing all that, Eddie Huang was taking on casual racism by a little well-known Fox News pundit (maybe you've heard of him, this Bill O'Reilly character?) and writing book reviews for the New York Times. Someone is winning this weekend more than you are.
While it’s a given that most chefs draw their plating inspiration from the art world, occasionally their dishes verge from mere inspiration to recognizable if not conscious homage. Because we love art, food that looks pretty, and opportunities to sound pretentious, we scoured modernist art and found that, in many cases, plates and paintings sometimes look eerily similar. (But as Big Bird once said, don’t eat the pictures.)
