CONVERSATION WITH ANGELO SINDACO
Bears love honey. But there are other bears – oversized hairy men who make up the dense gay subculture – who love all types of pasta, spaghetti and lasagna, cheesecakes and cupcakes. This is the passion which characterises the tale, in words and images, that Angelo Sindaco, active photographer in the glossy fashion world, has created with Cooking with the bears, a hilarious and cheeky cookbook which mixes irony and pride, sensuality and tradition, bellies (and what bellies!) and smiles. An art or a cook book? Only those who read it can judge. What is certain is that we have a real celebration of a model of diversity and acceptance, of those who love their own bodies, resisting the pressures of those who want us all to conform to the stereotype of happiness linked and constricted to six-pack abdominals. A book which doesn’t try to teach us anything, but manages to bring out brilliant shining conversations, with always unexpected results.
