An evening of food, wine and conversation
This fall the AGO presents Michelangelo: Quest for Genius and will feature dozens of the artist’s exquisite drawings. As the city of Toronto prepares for Michelangelo, we take perhaps his simplest sketches and turn them into inspiration for an unforgettable feast.
We are hosting a special evening to celebrate the art and food of Michelangelo. On September 12, chefs will prepare a delicious five-course meal inspired by the 16th century drawings of Michelangelo. They take the artist’s sketched shopping list filled with Renaissance ingredients and update them into a cohesive meal of Italian classics with wines to match. Michelangelo’s list is typical of his time…and includes requests such as tortelli, fennel soup, loaves of bread, and of course “un boca di vino” (a quart of wine). We use these ingredients and a little anachronistic license for an unforgettable meal.
Guests will dine on traditional panzanella salad, homemade stuffed pasta, traditional porchetta, semifreddo and a cheese course with some of Michelangelo’s favourites. Guests are encouraged to come and eat, drink and share in their love of good food and conversation.
