Product Details


“…her creations are delicious whether or not you prefer your bread rolls served in the shape of a Florence Knoll midcentury modern couch.” —New York Times Magazine

“Don’t be fooled by this book’s spare typeface and strikingly quirky imagery—anyone who appreciates food that looks as good as it tastes will want this book.” —Vogue

“…perfect for art- and food-lovers..ridiculously cool…” 

“…we couldn’t help but eat it up! Choi’s recipes seek to encourage the integration of art in everyday life by distilling the practices of figures such as Frida Kahlo and Barbara Kruger into their best and most delicious aspects” —Design Milk

“Equal parts art and cook book, Choi’s playful monograph combines the contemporary art and design worlds with home cooking to delirious results. Easily one of the weirdest coffee table books you’ll see this year.”—Robb Report

“This book of photos by Esther Choi is the perfect marriage of food and design, with edible recreations of well known art pieces.” —The Zoe Report

“Esther Choi serves up some Mies van Der Roe dip, Florence Knoll rolls, and Flan Flavin in her artwork-meets-cookbook edition Le Corbuffet. And yes, this is but a sampling of the cheeky, art- and architecture-inspired recipes that fill its 256 pages, along with crisp photographs of Dada-esque edible sculptures. This is the perfect gift for the foodie on your list who has a taste for the absurd, or the design wonk who loves to throw a whimsical dinner party.” —Metropolis
“…look beyond the book’s cheeky puns and there is meaty cultural critique…The book’s graphic design underscores Choi’s subversiveness too.” —Quartz

“…a riotous homage to the art and design of cooking and consumption…It’s these knowing recipe intros that combine biography and whimsical quips that make Le Corbuffet an essential conversation-starter for design-loving home cooks.” —Mold

“Cookbooks are a blessing for those who have zero clues about the wonders and tactics of cooking. But, most of them are monotonous in their approach, the same dishes, presented in the same manner across several varieties of these handy manuals. However, one lady is challenging the norm by portraying the dishes in her magazine as works of artistic hews.” —The Artistic Trap

“Esther Choi’s book Le Corbuffet is a delicious read” —Core 77
