The Futurist Cookbook by F. T. Marinetti & Fillìa
Published by Sternberg Press (2014)
In 1932, F. T. Marinetti and his collaborator Fillìa published La Cucina Futurista (The Futurist Cookbook), a manifesto-as-culinary-innovation. Replete with experimental recipes (the founder of Futurism, Marinetti, is known to have ranted about the social dangers of pasta eating), the book is a multilayered exploration of cultural metabolisms, with the dining table as its centerpiece, of course! Edited by Charlotte Birnbaum, translated by Barbara McGilvray and with illustrations by Jan Hietala.
