Description

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 28 from 5 to 6 p.m.

"Culinary Memory" is an exhibition that uses Brillat-Savarin's "The Physiology of Taste: Or Meditations on Transcendental Gastronomy" as a starting point from which to explore the history of the cookbook. It also draws upon Salvador Dali's "Les dîners de Gala" cookbook, which uses a very different approach to discuss the pleasures of the table. By organizing both under the themes found in "The Physiology of Taste," this exhibition walks visitors through the history of food writing and its relationship to our changing cultural understanding of food and cooking.
