Massimo Bottura bringt die Osteria Francescana, sein drei Sterne Restaurant aus Modena – Platz 2 der 50best of the world, Italien in die moderne Kunstgallery to the Contemporary Art von Sotheby’s London – 27 – 29.Juni 2015
“Cooking is about not only the quality of ingredients, but also the quality of the ideas”, so Massimo Bottura.
In einer Pressemitteilung teilt Bottura mit:
Transporting the conceptual premises of contemporary art into the kitchen, Massimo Bottura is a leading figure amongst a new generation of Italian chefs. Juxtaposing tradition and innovation with art and design, Bottura draws inspiration from a myriad of avant-garde contemporary artists – an approach that has won him the number two place on list of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2015.
The restaurant will open its doors at Sotheby’s in London for three days on the evenings of 27th, 28th and 29th June 2015, with a seven-course tasting menu carefully selected to provoke a dialogue between food and art.
Dishes on offer include the Damien Hirst-inspired ‘Beautiful Psychedelic Spin-painted veal, not flame grilled’ – a beef fillet, first marinated in milk, and then served with tri colour sauces purposefully spun like the artist’s spin-paintings. The sixth course, ‘Oops! I Dropped the Lemon Tart’ pays homage to Ai Weiwei’s radical work Dropping a Han Dynasty Urn (1995). The final course, ‘Camouflage: Hare in the Woods’ is inspired by Pablo Picasso who saw Cubism in a painted military truck.
Housed within the art galleries of the auction house, the restaurant will be hung with contemporary artworks by many of the artists who have influenced Bottura’s conceptual approach to cooking: Lucio Fontana, Damien Hirst, Maurizio Cattelan, Gerhard Richter. Spanning over 50 years of artistic production, the works will all be included in Sotheby’s upcoming auctions of Contemporary Art on 1st and 2nd July.
Strictly by reservation only
Seven course tasting menu including a welcome aperitif: £250.
A wine pairing will be available at £95.
