Season 3 Finale: Dining With Salvador Dalí
Things are about to get surreal, because today we’re talking about Salvador Dalí. The Spanish artist’s namesake museum is located in St. Petersburg. And one of the curators will explain the fascinating role that food played in Dalí’s life and work. (Note: This episode is best suited for mature listeners.)
It’s our season 3 finale, and unlike most of this season’s conversations, today’s episode was not recorded from Dalia’s bedroom closet. We bring you a fascinating look into the role food played in Salvador Dalí’s life and work. We’re sharing a recording of a presentation by Peter Tush, who is curator of education of the Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg. Peter gave the talk in April via Zoom as part of the Epicurean Delights series presented by Florida CraftArt.
Peter’s talk covers: eating, how food became symbolic for Dalí, cannibalism, edible architecture, digestion/excretion and the Dalí cookbook/dining. The Dalí cookbook Les dîners de Gala is available for purchase in the Dalí Museum store. (Note: This episode is best suited for mature listeners.)
