Artist’s Palate: Sean Scully’s pancakes
Flip through Irish-born artist Sean Scully's dynamic pancake recipe, as featured in our monthly Artist's Palate feature
Sean Scully has spent the last six decades fusing spirituality with abstraction, creating grids, stripes and bold stacks of colour. When the Irish-born artist proposed pancakes for our recipe series, we instantly imagined a stack, but as he explains, 'I could make a stack, like one of my sculptures or paintings. But the family is eagerly waiting, so take them as they come, with maple syrup for the kids and jam for the adults.' He has his pancake production down to a fine art, creating them a few times a week for his wife and eleven-year-old son. For Scully, giving a pancake enough airtime before serving is crucial because it excites the recipient. 'If you can flip it over a couple of times in the air, you're a master.'
