April 17 Dine and Learn Luncheon ~ Rebel London: Radical Minds

Dr. Louise Kane

Dr. Louise Kane

In conjunction with the Modernism Museum’s David Bowie exhibition, Dr. Louise Kane explores the radical figures whose rebellious art movements, literary works, and friendship circles enabled the development of London as a hotbed for cultural, musical, and artistic experiments that enabled people like Bowie to make their own new art forms in the 1960s and onwards. Beginning in the early 1910s, the lecture talks the audience through movements like Wyndham Lewis’s Vorticism movement, the Futurist movement that came into London via Italy and Paris, and the exciting new music scenes that began to unfold as jazz filtered into London from Harlem, New York.

Price of $35 includes 3-course prix fixe menu at 1921 Mount Dora. Reserve by calling the Modernism Museum at 352-385-0034.

Join us for a historical, gastronomic journey!

The Modernism Museum’s March Dine and Learn will be an incredibly engaging session led by former teacher and art expert, Herve Le Guilloux.

With Renaissance Gastronomy. A passage between The Middle Ages and the Modern era, Mr. Le Guilloux will discuss the development and refinement of European cuisine from the 14th to 17th centuries.  Learn what shaped the diets of the era, as related through art, narratives and literature of the times. 

When did diet books first commonly appear? What might Leonardo da Vinci have eaten; what did his kitchen look like? What are the roots of the Italian cuisine we enjoy today? How were westernized table manners adopted and refined? Learn these, and other fun, fascinating fine points of the origins of current day gastronomy.  

From the educated classes and nobility, to the peasants and farmers - eating and the attainment of food in the Middle Ages evolved through cultural mores, and scientific and medical beliefs. Hear the interesting history of gastronomic practices and terminology, and how they evolved to define the social hierarchy of a culture. 

Price for this Dine and Learn session is $35, and includes a three-course dinner (Wednesday) or Luncheon (Thursday).
