An appropriately oversized and exuberant coffee-table book, "Food in Vogue" is offered by the Editors of Vogue as part of the magazine's 125th anniversary. One of the most iconic publications of all time, Vogue wears its age well, showing a zest for food and food facts that will have foodies turning the pages with relish. The photos are vivid and have a fun, funky, fabulous vibe all their own--after all, this is food, done by Vogue. The articles are eclectic and fascinating, ranging from how many coffeemakers you have in your home and why you have them, to "Simply Red", an ode to ketchup, and to an unsuccessful attempt to smuggle French butter out of France (confiscated at the Charles de Gaulle airport). The roster of photographers and food writers who have left an indelible essence of talent throughout the years includes: Helmut Newton, Irving Penn, Anton Corbijn, Annie Lebovitz, Jeffrey Steingarten, Tamar Adler, Oliver Strand, and others. "Food in Vogue" is big, bold, never shy, and artfully abstract. It's a celebration of cuisine and culture, presented with inimitable style by the editors of Vogue.
