A collection of recipes and artwork from around Virginia, Masterpieces: A Celebration of Food and Art in Virginia, commemorates the 50th anniversary of The Council of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The second cookbook published by The Council, Masterpieces contains eighty-three recipes contributed by employees and supporters of Virginia arts organizations. Recipes range from the simplest, such as "Boursin Cheese Spread," to the more ambitious "Maestro Lobster Ravioli with Bisque Sauce," and from the traditional "Monticello Muffins," to the contemporary "Pistachio-Crusted Rockfish." The recipes, and the artworks that mirror them, represent the rich diversity of two of Virginia's most precious resources: her abundant food and spectacular art.
