To celebrate the kind generosity of our supporters, we have put together THE NEW NORMAL COOKBOOK for you to share and enjoy. This is a is a compilation of recipes contributed by artists in support of San Diego Visual Arts Network.
During these years of the pandemic, many of us have been spending more time in our kitchens. The artists we know embrace the creativity of the culinary arts as well as the visual arts. We are presenting here a set of recipes by local and artist ranging around the world, because the silver lining of the pandemic has been the broadening of our world though the internet. Often our priorities have been shaken up, but the need to feed and to share is so primal that it is a joy to see the variety of recipes and images included. For the sake of this project, we hope this is a New Normal and that artists and friends continue to share their inspiration. Eat Your Art Out may not be possible but Eat Your Art In is just a click away.
Great thanks go to everyone who contributed to the New Normal Cookbook 2021.
