The Art of Cooking

There is nothing more satisfying  than when art bleeds with culinary brilliance. It is an indulgence for the senses that shouldn’t be skipped. In Gustave Blanche III’s exhibit of paintings showcasing long-time chef Leah Chase, a slice of Louisiana’s food history is preserved. Wearing her signature pink hat and seen slicing and dicing various colorful vegetables, the onlooker can’t help but be swept up in the long standing history of Dooky Chase‘s. A long standing Louisiana famous food spot, Dooky Chase has more than 50 years of history, mostly with Chef Chase in the kitchen. It was only natural that talented Louisiana painter Blanche decided to honor her culinary brilliance and form this exhibit. Colorful and intricate lines of kitchen, food, and chefs you almost feel that you are looking at photographs instead of artwork. Her cooking is a work of art in its own right. Leah Chase: Paintings by Gustave Blanche III is on display in the Louisiana Galleries at the New Orleans Museum of Art through September 9.
