Food has appeared in art for centuries, and food that is prepared and presented artistically is all the rage today. In this program, participants will visit the galleries to see how food and art collided during the 19th and 20th centuries. Then our group will move to the classrooms to experiment with molecular gastronomy, a new and highly artistic way of approaching food. Want to learn how to make carrot “caviar” and gelified noodles? Well you will!
