Synergetic Stew - Explorations in Dymaxion Dining by R. Buckminster Fuller
Publisher: Lars Müller Publishers
Format: Softcover, spiralbound
Buckminster Fuller is globally known as a design scientist, architect, author, poet, engineer, and a true visionary, way ahead of his time. As a surprise gift for his eighty-sixth birthday, he received Synergetic Stew: a compilation of cooking recipes contributed by his friends and colleagues, sharing personal anecdotes and humorous recollections of Fuller’s life. Throughout the book are texts and poems from Fuller himself, including a recipe for tomato ice cream.
This facsimile edition is a glimpse into Fuller’s life, told by his peers and embedded in nearly a hundred recipes. A few of them are odes towards Fuller’s work, such as Shirley Sharkey’s GEODESICANDY, the Microbiotic Diet by John Cage, or Amy Edmondson’s Allspace-Filling Whole Wheat Bread.
