John Olsen, one of Australia's greatest living artists, made a life-changing discovery as a young man: Mediterranean cuisine - the cuisine of the sun. Fresh, seasonal produce has bee a key ingredient in his creativity and his art, from his famous paella paintings to lively sketches. This book explores Olsen's passion for cooking, art and travel - drawing extensively on his journals. He has lived in a remote Spanish cottage, in the Portuguese village of Castelo de Vide, on a rural property in Hill End, NSW, at an artists' commune in country Victoria, as well as by the harbour in Sydney's Watsons Bay, all the while drawing on his local environment in his art practice and cooking. Features 40 recipes loved by Olsen, 30 related paintings, over 50 sketches and drawings, and over 65 photographs.
