As part of our 2021 Virginia Festival of Jewish Film Experience
join us for a conversation about food and film
Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles
Deborah Krohn, Ottolenghi's academic guide with
Betsy DiJulio, exhibiting artist at MOCA's Nourish exhibit
In 2018, famous London-based restauranteur and cookbook author Yotam Ottolenghi was contacted by New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art with an unusual proposal—create a display of elaborate pastries inspired by what might have been served up during the heyday of the court of Versailles for a one-day event as part of their then-current “Visions of Versailles” exhibit. He agreed, and as plans came together for the big day, filmmaker Laura Gabbert was there to document everything. Celebrity chef Yotam Ottolenghi assembles a star-studded team of the world's most innovative pastry chefs to put on a Versailles-themed culinary gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Join a conversation about food and film with Deborah Krohn, Ottolenghi's academic guide, Bard Graduate Center associate professor, chair of Academic Programs, and coordinator for History and Theory of Museums, and Betsy DiJulio, Nourish exhibiting artist, accomplished writer, and master educator on Wednesday, April 28 at 8 p.m.
