Mondrian Cake from Modern Art Desserts

Rothko’s Pie fromÂ The Artist’s Palate
For a traditional (and easier) dessert, make MomÂ Mark Rothko’sÂ Birthday Apple Pie. It was his favorite – his wife made it every year for his birthday.Â Click here for the recipeÂ . The Artist’s PalateÂ cookbookÂ contains recipes and complete menus for lots of artist-inspired meals.
Dali’s Salad from MoMA Artists’ Cookbook
Back in the ’70s, New York’s MoMA publishedÂ Museum of Modern Art Artists’ Cook Book. The cookbook is full of interviews, anecdotes and RECIPES from 30 modern artists of the day.
- Louise Bourgeois
- Robert Motherwell
- De Koonig
As cookbooks go, this one is the wild card. In truth, the artistic Mom in your life may prefer you DON’T make her the Dali salad for Mother’s Day brunch.Â But what did you expect from Dali? Cole slaw? Try De Koonig’s Dutch Breakfast instead.

Hope you have a great Mother’s Day with the artistic lady in your life.
