Conversations in Culture: "Eating up Don Quixote: a Literary and Gastronomic Experience"


Filo-Vasquez-224x336

Join us on a literary and gastronomic journey into the world of Don Quixote. An exploration of the famous novel, in edible format, led by chef Firo Vázquez. An evening of reading and feasting on Cervantes’ masterpiece, reproduced for the occasion on a fully edible format.

The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha --or "Don Quixote", as it is often referred to-- follows the adventures and misfortunes of this self-proclaimed knight errant. The novel transports us to a world where reality and fantasy overlap, where windmills turn into giants, friars into enchanters, and common men into heroes.
Throughout time Don Quixote has come to stand for the mix of madness and temerity needed to go against the expected. Eating up Don Quitoxe is chef Firo Vazquez’s own quixotic adventure, the daring proposal of an errant chef convinced that words should be feasted upon, quite literally.

This program is in conjunction with the Embassy of Spain. Pre-registration required to enter into the event.
