Lee Miller A Life with Food, Friends & Recipes

  • Sale
  • Regular price £29.95


More than a book of recipes, this cookbook explores Lee Miller's life through the influence of food and how it transcends to become the great vehicle for which she eventually swaps her camera and uses for building bridges, healing old wounds and empowering other women.

A woman of many lives and mistress of her own re-invention, Lee Miller: model, Surrealist and fashion photographer, war correspondent and gourmet cook, did everything wholeheartedly and with an imaginative flair. Much has been written about the varied forms of her creativity but Lee Miller's achievement as a gourmet chef is usually left to being an endnote. Her granddaughter Ami Bouhassane sees this part of her life as Miller's longest battle and most extraordinary personal accomplishment in every sense.

Ami Bouhassane is a trustee of the Lee Miller Archives and has worked closely with the material for more than nineteen years. This intimacy with the work has given her a unique insight to her grandmother's life and access to never before published manuscripts and photographs which reveal a previously unknown aspect of Lee Miller.

Illustrated by many of Miller's pictures, the book also features ove a hundred of her recipes and materials from the cookbook that Lee Miller was secretly hoping to publish at the end of her life.

Written by Ami Bouhassane with an introduction by Antony Penrose.
