Do you plan to eat more fruits and vegetables? Here's an elegant solution: enjoy the appealing still lifes of Galison's Desserts from the Golden Age portfolio of recipe note cards.

Cards reproduce details from 17th century Dutch and Flemish paintings from the collection of the National Gallery of Art in Washington.

Each card has a painting on the front and a recipe on the back:
  • Jan van Huysum's Still Life with Flowers and Fruit, c. 1715, with a recipe for Peaches in Syrup
  • Balthasar van der Ast's Basket of Fruits, c. 1622, with a recipe for Pear Tart with Currants
  • Willem Kalf's Still Life, c. 1660, with a recipe for Lemon Custard
  • Osias Beert the Elder, Dishes with Oysters, Fruit, and Wine, c. 1620/1625, with a recipe for Almond Tartlets

    Recipes were adapted for the modern kitchen by food historian Peter G. Rose from the 1683 edition of De Verstandige Kock (The Sensible Cook).
