It is a book for both the coffee table and the kitchen table. An art theme throughout celebrates the culinary heritage of our membership, Southwest Louisiana artists, Lake Charles pioneers, and historic events that have shaped and sustained the Art Associates organization for over 55 years. Featured on divider pages and interspersed amongst the recipes are artworks that respond to the idea of “food”.
