The Illustrated Recipe art exhibit delves into an interesting theme. It pays tribute to the Marie-Antoine Carême, who has gone down in history as the King of Chefs or Chef of Kings. The world's first celebrity chef and founder of the concept of haute cuisine, it shouldn't come as a surprise that his dishes would influence other artistic realms today.

Hosted by Gallery 40 and Cameron Contemporary Art, The Illustrated Recipe exhibit will be part of Brighton Festival 2013 later this month. It features five British artists who portrayed interpretations of Regency period dishes in six very different mediums of art. For instance, Kirsty Wither used paint, Kate Jenkins worked with crochet and Annabel de Vetten of Conjurer's Kitchen baked a cake.
