food art

We rarely associate black and white colors with food illustration but it’s not so obvious. Here are some very interesting illustrations by Alice Pattullo, artist based in East London:

It’s been a long time since my last post! I wanted to concentrate on my own artistic work recently and together with winter-sicknesses period and lack of computer at home it generated much longer break than I planned.

Today I want to share with you first watercolor illustration in a new series I’m working on – my favourite recipes. Print is available in my Etsy shop.

mapart.me - Lemon Pickles

Here is the recipe – it’s really easy and delicious but you have to wait for 2-3 weeks until they are ready.

LEMON PICKLES (circa 1l jar)

* 5 lemons

* salt

* olive oil (extra virgine)

* a few cloves of garlic

* a few parsley leaves

* red chili pepper

Wash the lemons carefully in warm water. Slice them on circa 5 mm (0.2 inch) pieces. Put the lemons on a plate in layers.Sprinkle each layer with salt generously. Put away for 24 hours.

Towel dry the lemons. Put into a jar. Stick slices of chili, garlic and parsley leaves. Cover with olive oil entirely. Tilt the jar gently to let the air bubbles go.

Wait for 2-3 weeks.

When all lemons are eaten you can use the oil for salad dressings or rosting meet.

Bon apetit!
