F O O D A R T C H A L L E N G E

smartOne of my favourite Artist ever is Sophie Calle. She appears, under the pseudonym of Maria in Paul Auster's novel: Leviathan. In non-fictional parts, she is described cooking monochromactic dinners. One colour per day of the week. I have always been fascinated with this concept.
This week end, I will try to think of 7 sets of menus, let's go for 2 course meals - 3 would be too much hassle.

To summarise, I will have to work on:
-Green, the easiest
-Red
-Orange
-white
now I'm in trouble .... uh, blue? no, certainly not!

-yellow
-brown
-pink, I can only think of ham and ginger pickles... I'll have to find more nutrious than that. Any idea?

    Intersting concept. Would pink lamb be okay for pink? Check out this website http://www.colormatters.com/appmatters.html

    What about blue corn chips? I think there are some blue potatoes in traditional Maori food.

  • Blue potatoes? really?? I've never seen any before. Do you reckon I'll be able to find some somewhere in South Auckland?
    I won't find any at Foodtown, that's for sure.

    Thanks for the link.

    PS: Good luck for today

  • Colour

    I was thinking blue potatoes too.

    If blue proves too traumatic, what about purple? Then you can use red cabbage and lavender in your food. And Chinese yams, which are purple in colour. Very interesting concept.

    I am finding myself fascination by your scope of experimentation on your site. I thought I had some left field ideas but some of yours are really interesting.
