Every day a different artist will cook. This is the program (11 a.m. to 7 p.m.):
Some of you will remember Carol Goodden, co-founder of FOOD with Gordon Matta-Clark in October 1971, who will be present at Frieze to prepare some of her famous delicious, hearty soups. Born in London, during WW II, Goodden was all too familiar with the personal project of how to stay warm in houses without central heating. Besides steeping in a hot bath, there was the method of internal warming – via hot tea, porridge, or soup. Soups offer fabulous nutrition and stick with you better than tea or porridge. But mainly the conception of any soup can excite a good cook’s imagination. They can be used as “paintings” to decorate the table with a colorful carrot soup, or dark greens with whites – aromatic. They can be beefy, grainy, thin, gingery, heavy for winter, cool and crisp for the summers, even fruity.
Goodden’s FOOD was based on two choices of soups and a big hunk of freshly-baked bread. The menu changed daily running the gamut of American, French, Spanish, Mexican, Asian, Greek and Portuguese soups that Carol had learned in living abroad, traveling and sharing cuisines. Two of her soups (Carrot Soup Español and Cauliflower Cress Soup) have been chosen to be prepared at Frieze. Be sure to catch her there on Friday, May 10!
