Publishers Text

Author of the cult-favorite Cooking for Artists, Mina Stone, returns with a collection of 80 new recipes inspired by her traditional Greek heritage and her years cooking for some of New York’s most innovative artists.

Growing up in a close-knit Greek-American household, Mina Stone learned to cook from her Yiayia, who taught her that food doesn’t have to be complicated to be delicious—and that any dish can be improved with judicious amounts of lemon, olive oil, and salt. In this deeply personal cookbook, Stone celebrates her grandmother and the other influences that have shaped her life, her career, and her culinary tastes and expertise. Lemon, Olive Oil, Salt blends dozens of Mediterranean-inspired recipes and the stories behind them with interviews from luminaries in the art and culinary worlds, including groundbreaking visual artists Lorraine O’Grady and Hugh Hayden, culinary icon Angela Dimiyuga of The Standard and Mission Chinese restaurants, and beloved cookbook author Julia Sherman.

Stone offers home cooks a taste of her heritage with healthy, flavorful, and uncomplicated dishes such as Syrian Bulger and Yogurt with Brown Butter Pine Nuts; Persian Figs with Cardamom and Rosewater; Baby Lettuce with Toasted Sesame Seeds, Mint, and Meyer Lemon Yogurt; and Braised Chickpeas with Orange Zest and Garlic Bread Crumbs. These recipes use fresh, flavorful ingredients to create elegantly simple dishes, complemented by beautiful, minimalist photography and art throughout.

A fresh and unconventional fusion of art and food, Lemon, Olive Oil, Salt is an engaging (and delicious!) cultural and culinary tour, offering a unique interplay of essays, interviews, art, and food, all complimented by the design of world-renowned artist Urs Fischer.
