Known for subverting the conventions of fashion and celebrity photography, Teller here turns his iconoclastic eye to the two-Michelin-starred food of chef Antonio Guida. Eleven menus of five courses encapsulate the unique, offhanded chic of the Hotel Il Pellicano, in Teller's second photographic collaboration with this exclusive Italian retreat. One of the hippest and most beautiful destinations in the world, the Hotel Il Pellicano is a hangout for the design, fashion and art worlds. In 2011 an eponymous book, with photography by John Swope, Slim Aarons and Juergen Teller and an introduction by Bob Colacello, chronicled the glamour of this modern-day dolce vita, from the days when Emilio Pucci, Douglas Fairbanks Jr, Britt Ekland and Susanna Agnelli could be found relaxing by the pool to the carefree spirit preserved today. Edited and produced by Violette Editions and published by Rizzoli, this first book reprinted within a year. Eating at Hotel Il Pellicano, published by Violette Editions, is a photography book whose subject is food, style and location. Each menu is named after one of today's illustrious visitors - Missoni, Borghese, Noguchi - conjuring delicious fantasies of Italian holidays in days of endless sunshine. Will Self sets the scene in a preface despatched from his suite.

Reviews

In his preface to the hybrid cookbook -art book Eating at Hotel Il Pellicano (Violette Editions), English author Will Self writes, " If Thoreau could have stayed at one at Walden would have remained without a tenant forever." Photographer Juergen Teller's images of chef Antonio Guida's sculptural culinary creations are textual, Technicolor, transporting and not at all typical of the genre - just like a meal at this ultimate Tuscan seaside resort.--Brekke Fletcher"WSJ." (10/01/2013) The Tuscan jewel Hotel Il Pellicano is famous for its glamorous roster of jet-setting guests - from Agnellis to Puccis. Now, photographer Juergen Teller captures the creations of its two-Michelin-star-chef, Antonio Guida, with a spectacular cookbook, Eating at Hotel Il Pellicano. Adorned with neon dollops and edible flowers, these dishes marvel beyond imagination.--Romy Oltuski "Harper's Bazaar " Photographer Juergen Teller's images of chef Antonio Guida's sculptural culinary creations are textual, Technicolor, transporting and not at all typical of the genre - just like a meal at this ultimate Tuscan seaside resort.--Brekke Fletcher "WSJ Magazine " In this cookbook, Juergen Teller photographs the extravagantly elegant food from the celebrated Hotel Il Pelicano in Tuscany. This title explores the complexity and originality of two-Michelin-starred chef Antonio Guida and his wild and whimsical dishes.--Noelle Lacombe "Ball Harbour Magazine " With images by Juergen Teller and text by chef Antonio Guida (plus an introduction by Will Self), this is food photography reinvented for the modern age - all bright colours, dark shadows and glistening sauces. Teller treats food as he treats the human body, getting up close and personal, voyeuristically emphasising the unusual and perverse. Guida's residency at the Hotel Il Pellicano in Grosseto has resulted in two Michelin stars, and a transformation of the remote retreat into a gastronomic destination.--Jonathan Bell "Wallpaper.com " Fashion photog Juergen Teller has lent his inimitable eye to Eating at Hotel Il Pelicano, a look at the otherworldly creations of twice-Michelin- starred Antonio Guida, head chef at the jet-set-favored Tuscany retreat.--Anne Slowey "Elle Magazine "
