A Culinary Event
with Niki Ford & Tamar Adler
Thursday, April 12, 7pm


Join Lucas Artists Residency Program Culinary Fellow Niki Ford and Tamar Adler, author of An Everlasting Meal and former Chez Panisse cook, on Thursday, April 12, at 7pm, as they present a coming of age food tale written especially for the evening! 


The reading of Tamar's tale, "Wherewith shall it be salted." will be paired with the meal described in the story, thus steeping the diner in context and any consequential emotions. This delicious experiment provokes us to think differently about our relationship to food and dining. Discover the meal you'll be served as the details of a clandestine dinner party unfold in the story.


Ford joined Montalvo in January 2012. She cooked for six years at Chez Panisse in addition to multiple stints at the Rome Sustainable Food Project at the American Academy in Rome. Adler's An Everlasting Meal, a tribute to the late M.F.K. Fisher's classic How to Cook a Wolf, is a rallying cry to the home cook, instructing one to eat with "economy and grace."

Note: The meal contains a snack and three courses. It is not vegetarian, does not contain red meat and may contain dairy and poultry. Wine will be served (included in the ticket price).
