Online Shopping: closed now, back soon

The safety of our visitors, friends and all who work with us at the RA is our highest priority. In line with the advice from Public Health England, the RA is closed temporarily; we have now taken the further decision to close our online shop in the short term, and to minimise non-essential activity.

We will be in touch once online shopping is available again, and are using the opportunity to improve the site and online experience we offer: we promise it will be better than ever! Meanwhile, if you have a query about an existing order, please contact us.

Whilst the front doors of the RA are closed, and for the time being the online shop, we will continue to offer creative inspiration to enjoy from home, and new ways of connecting. Visit us at Royal Academy of Arts, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Sign up to receive RA emails and find out once the online shop is open.

Thank you for your continued support. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to the online shop and in person again soon.

Wishing you all the very best,
The Royal Academy of Arts Team

Product story

First published nearly 40 years ago, this unique cookbook brings together recipes, sketches and culinary musings from some of the best-loved and most fondly remembered Royal Academicians, from Edward Bawden to Jean Cooke. Both charming and completely eccentric, the recipes and recollections look back affectionately to a time when starving artists lived on wine and garden snails, and haggis was the height of exotic cuisine. From Leonard Rosoman’s Lobsters Amagansett to Kyffin Williams’s Rook Pie, each of these beautifully illustrated recipes will delight and amuse, although some should perhaps be left to the more adventurous cook only...
