The Red Cook
History and Recipes from a Spartacist Cell at the Bauhaus Weimar


It isn’t clear if Hannah R. really existed. But she provides an extremely condensed account of her life as a Bauhaus student under Paul Klee, between the kitchen and the cabaret, the poor house and armed strife in Weimar. She knows all the avantgarde figures, leads all the discussions, is present at every ambush, and leaves no culinary sensation untested. The descriptions of the Zeitgeist, the protagonists and the atmosphere in this laboratory of modernism are all linked in to political events following the First World War. And to the recipes.
