CULINARY ARTS ST. PETERSBURGH September — November
CELEBRATING FERRAN CERVANTES ADRIÀ: THE INVENTION OF FOOD Join Yale Professor of Hispanic and Comparative Literatures Roberto González Echevarría to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the death of one of the most important figures in Spanish literature. Professor Gonzalez-Echevarría will present, together with young Cervantes scholars Matthew Tanico and Catherine Brown, a collection of essays on Cervantes and his body of work featured in the April issue of Cuadernos Hispanoamericanos. This day will also include a reading of extracts from the works of Cervantes and a performance by Spanish soprano Amaya Arberas and guitar player Holmes Morton honoring the famed writer and his influence on Spanish culture. This event will be held in Spanish.
The Dalí Museum’s exhibition will showcase the culinary work of Adrià through breathtaking images of his creations paired with their inspirations from the natural world, creative notebooks elaborating Adrià’s innovating thinking, and tableware & serveware designed by Adrià. Dalí’s foodinspired paintings and flatware he designed will also be presented.
Visitors can experience Adrià’s genius firsthand – he created a lobster gazpacho dish in honor of the Museum that will be available exclusively at The Dalí’s Café Gala. Audiences will also have opportunities to appreciate food as more than nourishment through special culinary events in homage to Adrià.
