Kitchen Culture, Captured

Here is a slideshow of photos from our hit Counter Space public program, Kitchen Culture. Over 100 people joined us for an incredible dinner in October, inspired by a 1925 German cookbook and prepared by Executive Chef Lynn Bound and the Cafe 2 team.

Before our historically delicious meal was concluded with Andrea Bell’s competition-winning pflaumenkuchen, we were also treated to a napkin-folding workshop by Tracy Wilson; a live performance of Rotifer’s song “Frankfurt Kitchen“; and “Good Enough to Eat,” artist Nicolas Dumit Estevez‘s play on cooking show instruction. The artist explains this rousing parody: “[E]dible as well as inedible ingredients are used to produce a dish that includes the performer’s body. Toes, thighs, neck, and buttocks are carefully prepared into an elaborate recipe of an onanistic nature that serves one.”

Thank you again to our colleagues and participants who helped realize this unique and memorable event!
