The culinary world often gives us visual art wrapped in performance art. We marvel at the beauty of a dish, the flavor of a wine and the mastery of a chef. And through the centuries, the Spanish culture has created a world of elegance and beauty wrapped in the taste of its food and wine, and featured in the vessels we use to enjoy them.
Starting July 6th SMU’s The Meadows Museum will feature a modern look at all of these elements. Through both a table top display, and special programs they will present Foodjects: Design and the New Cuisine in Spain, designed to help you recognize and appreciate the sensorial experience we have with food and wine through the of the tools we use.
The programs start on July 8th with Saffron to Shellfish: A history of Spanish Cuisine, with food provided by Cafe Madrid; July 15 will feature a look at Spanish wine and it’s magnificent wine regions, with a tasting provided by one of Spain’s oldest Cava producers, Freixenet. More details and reservations available here.
While you are at the Museum be sure to check out the collection of Charles the IV of Spain, one of the most notable art collectors of the Spanish monarchy, and the first time this collection has ventured outside of Spain and on display through July 18.
