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, such as a reminiscence about Bucky’s somewhat peculiar but enthusiastic 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.
This book is a glimpse into Fuller’s life, told by his peers and embedded in nearly a hundred achievable recipes. A few of them are joyful odes towards Fuller’s oeuvre, such as Shirley Sharkey’s GEODESICANDY, the Microbiotic Diet by John Cage, or Amy Edmondson’s Allspace-Filling Whole Wheat Bread. In addition to the facsimile, Fuller’s grandson Jaime Snyder reflects upon often overlooked facets of Bucky’s character, revelead through anecdotes of his relationship with food. Short profiles of all contributors complete the reprint.
On the occasion of Buckminster Fuller’s 125th anniversary in July 2020, this reprint is released in a limited edition.
