Dalí Museum Presents Immersive Dinner Series Celebrating Ferran Adrià Exhibit
A special exhibition, “Ferran Adrià: The Invention of Food,” is coming to the Salvador Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, from Sept. 25 to Nov. 27.
“Widely celebrated for changing the landscape of gastronomy, renowned chef and restaurateur Ferran Adria changed cooking in the same way Salvador Dali changed art,” the museum website reads.
“Our upcoming exhibition will showcase Adria’s culinary work with breathtaking images of his creations paired with their inspirations from the natural world, creative notebooks elaborating his innovative thinking, and tableware and serve-ware he designed. Dali’s food-inspired paintings and flatware he designed will also be presented.”
Alongside the special exhibit, the museum is presenting a series of seven “immersion dinners” to serve as an “experiential homage to Chef Adria.”
Chef Fabrizio Aielli will be hosting a Venetian carnival-themed dinner, taking inspiration from the history and culture of his home city, Venice. Aielli once said Adrià was “a wake-up call for every chef in the world.”
