Art that Nurtures
Bill Wurtzel started making artistic, healthy breakfasts on weekends just to amuse his wife Claire. No pre-planning, just spontaneous creations inspired by whatever ingredients are on hand. Several years ago she encouraged Bill to photograph the breakfasts because they were spectacular but gone in minutes.
Bill & Claire emailed the photos to friends and family, who became inspired to create their own healthy, silly breakfasts. The positive responses they received were overwhelming.
In June of 2011, the New York Times printed an article about Bill’s guitar playing and surprised him by featuring the breakfasts on the front page of the online New York Times. That led to their book, “Funny Food” – 365 Fun, Healthy, Silly, Creative breakfasts.
Claire and Bill aspire to make learning about healthy eating fun. They conduct Funny Food Workshops in schools. All who attend are encouraged to play with, and then eat their healthy food. They advise people to just jump right in and jump-start the creativity that’s in all of us. Your breakfasts don’t have to look like they’ll hang in the Louvre. It’s the gesture that counts.
