A Valentine's Dinner with Gertrude and Alice

Celebrate this year’s Valentine’s Day through the menus of an intriguing couple, the avant-garde pioneer Gertrude Stein, and her “secretary-companion,” Alice B. Toklas.  The dinner is inspired by their complicated and intense relationship, which was documented in Stein’s poems, their exchanged love notes, peers’ memoirs, and even between-the-lines in Toklas’ cookbook.


All recipes served will be taken from The Cookbook of Alice B. Toklas, and including unique dishes such as "Roasted Saddle of Young Boar," "Asparagus with Savory Whipped Cream," and "Singapore Ice-Cream."


Cost: $40.00, BYOB
