Working with exhibition curator Juliet Kinchin, Art Food Café executive chef Lynn Bound, pastry chef Cristina Nastasi, and Cafe 2 general manager Tracy Wilson, we pooled our different expertise to present the <a href="http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/events/9999">Kitchen Culture</a> event.</p> <div id="attachment_11174" style="width: 279px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://www.moma.org/explore/inside_out/inside_out/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/FrankfurtKitchenK112.sm_.jpg"><img class="size-full wp-image-11174" title="Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky.

General manager Tracy Wilson provided us with a demonstration of some innovative napkin-folding, while performance artist Nicholas Dumit Estevez employed his own body as the primary ingredient for several performative recipes. The evening ended with musician Robert Rotifer performing his musical ode to the Frankfurt Kitchen and its creator, Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky. This spectacular evening of events was punctuated with several courses of delicious German cuisine, compliments of chefs Lynn and Cristina.
