At The Table

Satisfy your appetite for art and culture. With our series At the Table, food-world luminaries serve up connections between art, culture and edible traditions. 
Presenters are passionate gourmands who infuse classic cooking with innovative twists. All will illuminate connections between their culinary philosophy and the museum’s collection, exploring ways culture is shared through food, just as it is through art.
