After visiting some fitted kitchens of my friends (and inspired by the print below), I felt compelled to purchase a cast iron skillet to supplement my collection of pots and pans.

The skillet has proven to be immensely useful and I have used it repeatedly to make a quick and easy pizza in addition to the frittata below.

This frittata recipe is extremely flexible and any number of ingredients can be supplemented to the beaten eggs to suit what is on hand. The hot iron produces a lovely crust and helps evenly cook whatever concoction is poured inside.

The screenprint titled Still Life (pictured above) by William Scott depicts elements prevalent in his work throughout his career. Starting in the 1940s, Scott’s paintings were concerned with simple still life arrangements featuring pots and pans on a bare table.

After a period of more traditional representation in the 1950s, Scott returned to increasingly abstract compositions from the 1960s onwards. The pots and pans were paired with other geometric forms, layered on flattened backgrounds. In the print above, the eggs and plate are the same shape and color and are only differentiated by size.
