A Chef's Odyssey: An Autobiographical Cookbook, by Guy Reuge with Philip F. Palmedo.
“What a pleasure to read this book! It's the story of a boy in France with a dream to become a chef, and it follows him along the rocky road to finally become a great, successful chef-restaurateur in America. The recipes in the book, classic French with a modern touch, are wonderfully detailed and reflect Guy's distinctive personal style.” Andre Soltnér

The Guises of Galatea: Six Sculptors of the Figure
Catalog and essay for a show curated by Mr. Palmedo at Gallery North, June, 2003
Objects designed with purely practical purposes in mind, such as jet engine blades, are widely recognized as beautiful. This essay follows the implications of this, and the “beauty” of mathematical equations, back to the origins of our aesthetic instincts. An appreciation for mathematical relationships and physical phenomena such as balance, it argues, had survival and preferential mating value. This reasoning supports the argument that our aesthetic tastes are built into our genes and that art is a fundamental part of what makes us human.
