Flavors of the Middle East: Cooking Art History
Across the centuries, from Spain to Indonesia, Islamic culture has used rich colors, patterns, and flavors to create precious and powerful objects and experiences. Join local chefs Java Hemmat (Hummus Chick) and Ragab Rashwan (King Tut’s Food Truck) and a Frist Center museum educator as they guide you on a journey through 130 years of artifacts in the exhibition Ink, Silk, and Gold: Islamic Art from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Participants will begin with a multisensory tour at the Frist. Then, meet at Mesa Komal to prepare and taste a five-course meal that will include dishes inspired by a thirteenth-century Middle Eastern cookbook.
