In honor of the Les Diners de Gala by Salvador Dali exhibition, The Ellen Noel Art Museum will host a private tasting event inspired by recipes from Salvador Dali’s cook book, “Les Diners De Gala’. Several chefs and restaurants from the Permian Basin have been invited to create an Amuse-bouche, which is a one bite dish inspired by Dali’s recipes. Guests will visit 8 or more stations each with an inspired recipe along with a beverage pairing. Once you have had an opportunity to taste each dish, you will tour the exhibition Les Diners De Gala by Salvador Dali, which is on loan from the Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University Collection.
Limited number of tickets are available.

In 1973, Salvador Dalí one of the world’s most famous surrealist artists, published Les Diners de Gala. This cookbook paired 136 recipes over 12 chapters with exceptionally strange illustrations and collages created especially for the publication. The artworks depict towering mountains of crayfish with unsettling overtones of cannibalism, an unusual meeting of a swan and a toothbrush in a pastry case, and portraits of Dali himself mingling with chefs against decadent place settings. Recipes include such delicacies as “Thousand Year Old Eggs”, “Veal Cutlets Stuffed With Snails”, “Frog Pasties”, and “Toffee with Pine Cones”. The book was in collaboration with several leaders in French gastronomy including, Lasserre, La Tour d’Argent, Maxim’s and Le Buffet de la Gare de Lyon.
