Food Tarot Decks
Food related, epicurean and gastronomic tarot cards, decks and oracles.
The Chocolate Tarot is a full 78 card tarot deck based on the history and influence of chocolate throughout the world. The cards show its progression from discovery as an Aztec food until the present popularity in a range of styles and old-time advertisements. Finally - a tarot about chocolate.
The Cook's Tarot: Dining with the Major Arcana is a set of 22 double-sided, large cards that beautifully combine tarot with food. Each card sets the scene for dinner with the major arcana's character, and provides a symbolically linked recipe as well. Now available in a full 78-card edition.
The Epicurean Tarot matches cooking and Tarot in its 78 recipe cards. Each card has an American-style recipe, an image from the Universal Waite Tarot, and a small blurb about its traditional meaning.
The Housewives Tarot is a kitschy "domestic divination deck" packaged in a mock recipe box. The artwork is thoroughly fifties in style, attitude, furnishings, and fashion. It's a light-hearted gift set for the complete Tarot beginner, or a novelty deck for the more experienced reader or collector.
The Tarocchi della Buona Tavola translates as 'Tarot of the Good Table' and has light-hearted Tarot images celebrating food. Not actually a tarot deck, these images are from a portfolio by Antonio Lupatella with the 22 cards on 11 sheets. A limited edition of 50 copies.
Very like the Tarocchi da Colazione by the same artist, the Tarocchi di Pranzo has photographs of very simple Tarot symbols painted on 22 biscuit-like oblong crackers.
The Cook's Tarot celebrates cooks: those who gather, create, serve food and physical and spiritual nourishment for others. The deck has 78 lively cards depicting modern scenes of kitchens, restaurants and cooking, all based on the traditional Rider-Waite imagery.
