Publisher Description

A delightful dymaxion cookbook homage to Buckminster Fuller, featuring John Cage's macrobiotic recipes, Margaret Mead's cucumber salad and more Buckminster Fuller is globally known as a design scientist, architect, author, poet, engineer and a true visionary. On his 86th birthday he received the cookbook Synergetic Stew as a surprise present from his friends and admirers, who share recipes along with personal anecdotes and humorous recollections of Fuller (for example, a reminiscence about Bucky's love for tea in all its variations). Scattered throughout the book are enticing texts and poems from Fuller himself, including even a recipe for tomato ice cream. Constructed around 100 achievable recipes, this book is a glimpse into Fuller's life, as told by his peers. A few of the recipes are a joyful ode to Fuller's oeuvre, such as Shirley Sharkey's "GEODESICANDY," the "Macrobiotic Diet" by John Cage or Amy Edmondson's "Allspace-Filling Whole Wheat Bread." In addition to the facsimile, Jamie Snyder reflects upon often-overlooked facets of Bucky's character, as revealed through anecdotes of his relationship to food. Contributors include : Bil Baird, Peter Brown, John Cage, Lim Chong Keat, Elizabeth Choy, John Ciardi, John Denver, Amy Edmondson, Ted Ehmann, Werner Erhard, Ronald Feldman, John and Isobel Fistere, Medard Gabel, Eugene Garfield, Neva Goodwin, d'Arcy Hayman, Henry J. Heimlich, Miranda Kaiser, Anne Kordus, Kuyoshi Kuromiya, Mae Lee, Paula Martin, Margaret Mead, Karl Menninger, Yehudi Menuhin, Martin and Margy Meyerson, Ann Mintz, Don Moore, Ed Muskie, Libby Newman, Isamu Noguchi, Gerard K.
