Mina’s Stone “Cooking for artists”
Pía Dalesson

Chef Mina Stone has been cooking delicious lunches at Urs Fischer’s Brooklyn-based art studio for the past five years and producing private gallery dinners in the New York art world since 2006. Cooking for Artists presents more than 70 of Stone’s family-style recipes inspired by her Greek heritage and her love of simple, fresh, seasonal food. The book is designed by Fischer and includes drawings by Hope Atherton, Darren Bader, Matthew Barney, Alex Eagleton, Urs Fischer, Cassandra MacLeod, Elizabeth Peyton, Rob Pruitt, Peter Regli, Josh Smith, Spencer Sweeney and Philippos Theodorides–all members of the community of artists that delights in Stone’s cooking.

“Like any great art form, food has the power to transport you,” Stone said in a statement. “ (HALEY CHOUINARD for Galerie Magazine)

 Fittingly, Stone also admits to developing recipes based on color: “When you look at your plate,” she says, “I feel like all those items should be really beautiful together.” (
