Inspiration! Roundup: Cooking with Salvador Dali, Miyazaki's girls, and more!

This week I am inspired by Amelia Earhart, Salvador Dali's cookbook, Miyazaki's girls, and a really cool wine decanter
This Week's I Want to Go to There:
An artist studio full of the tools of creativity.

Cooking with Dali

Did you know that Salvador Dali always wanted to be a chef? That's right, even great artists have secret dreams! He never did become a chef, but he did release a cookbook, complete with his own artwork and this introduction:
We would like to state clearly that, beginning with the very first recipes, Les Diners de Gala, with its precepts and its illustrations, is uniquely devoted to the pleasures of Taste... If you are a disciple of one of those calorie-counters who turn the joys of eating into a form of punishment, close this book at once; it is too lively, too aggressive, and far too impertinent for you.
Preach, Dali!

Get a peek at the most beautiful cookbook ever here.

A different kind of decanter

Despite having done several wine tastings where wine knowledge was given to me, I have basically only retained the fact that it comes in two colours and it tastes like wine and some of it comes in bottles with fantastic labels. I am also pretty sure that the point of a decanter is to let the wine breathe or something like that.

This means that these incredible wine decanters made to mimic hearts, veins, and root systems, may not serve their intended purpose, but also that who cares, they are stunning and remind me to look at the world in different ways.

The Strange Decanter
Easier Said Than Done
"Decide… whether or not the goal is worth the risks involved. If it is, stop worrying.”
– Amelia Erhart
(As good advice as this is, "stop worrying" as a motto coming from a woman whose plane disappeared is... a bit cautionary? I mean, theoretically she decided her goal was worth that risk, so it's still valid.)

Miyazaki's Girls

One of my dearest friends is a HUGE Miyazaki fan. I have always appreciated his work, but haven't actually watched that much of it. This gives me yet another reason to check it out.
