Chef Allen’s Monday Night Farm-to-Table Dinners: From Palette to Palate: PABLO PICASSO


December 18, 2017
6:30 pm


This is a 5-course, plant-based dinner, inspired by the fresh and local produce of the Farmers Market. Every week we theme these dinners differently so that the spirit of what is going on in our community can infuse the ingredients and give us something to talk about together. As Art Basel invades our city this month, we look to the artists we love to give us inspiration. Tonight, we celebrate the one-and-only Pablo Picasso.


Pablo Picasso was the most dominant and influential artists of the first half of the twentieth century. Associated most of all with pioneering Cubism, alongside Georges Braque, he also invented collage and made major contributions to Symbolism and Surrealism. He saw himself above all as a painter, yet his sculpture was greatly influential, and he also explored areas as diverse as printmaking and ceramics. Finally, he was a famously charismatic personality; his many relationships with women not only filtered into his art but also may have directed its course, and his behavior has come to embody that of the bohemian modern artist in the popular imagination.
