Marjorie Carr created the Florida Defenders of the Environment and organized a movement that stopped the Cross Florida Barge Canal. Marjory Stoneman Douglas is notable for her work establishing the Everglades National Park. Rawlings, who wrote “The Yearling” in 1938, was inspired by her home, which was later restored and is on the National Register of Historic Places. “The Yearling” won the Pulitzer Prize in 1939.

DINING ON THE BALCONY OF EUROPE: EXPLORING GEORGIAN CUISINE

The Modernism Museum Mount Dora presents our next Dine & Learn: Dining on the Balcony of Europe: Exploring Georgian Cuisine. The Wednesday, May 22 event features a presentation by Dr. Michael Denner at 12:30 PM (luncheon) and 6:30 (dinner). The Dine and Learn will take place at the Modernism Museum’s award-winning restaurant, 1921 Mount Dora. The cost is $35 for a three-course, prix-fixe menu. 

Join the Modernism Museum and Dr. Denner as we explore the rich and layered culinary history of the country of Georgia. Its location at the crossroads of Asia and Europe has brought travelers, merchants, missionaries and conquerors of all kinds and creeds. Georgia’s cultural heritage spans thousands of years, and the many foreign influences have resulted in a food culture that is distinct from any European or Asian cuisine. 

Dr. Michael Denner is the director of Stetson University’s program in Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies, director of Stetson’s Honors Program, and editor of The Tolstoy Studies Journal. Dr. Denner has published extensively on pan-Slavic politics, history and art, and he has recently published a Russian-language cookbook which is devoted to traditional Georgian vegetarian/ vegan recipes. A variety of Georgian beers and wines will be available for purchase. 

Please call the Modernism Museum at (352) 385-0034 to reserve your spot. Limited seating is available.

APRIL 17 DINE AND LEARN DINNER ~ REBEL LONDON: RADICAL MINDS

Dr. Louise Kane

Dr. Louise Kane

In conjunction with the Modernism Museum’s David Bowie exhibition, Dr. Louise Kane explores the radical figures whose rebellious art movements, literary works, and friendship circles enabled the development of London as a hotbed for cultural, musical, and artistic experiments that enabled people like Bowie to make their own new art forms in the 1960s and onwards. Beginning in the early 1910s, the lecture talks the audience through movements like Wyndham Lewis’s Vorticism movement, the Futurist movement that came into London via Italy and Paris, and the exciting new music scenes that began to unfold as jazz filtered into London from Harlem, New York.

Price of $35 includes 3-course prix fixe menu at 1921 Mount Dora. Choose Lunch Reservation (12:30pm -2:30pm) or Dinner Reservation (6:30pm-8:30pm). Reserve by calling the Modernism Museum at 352-385-0034.

JOIN US FOR A HISTORICAL, GASTRONOMIC JOURNEY

The Modernism Museum’s March Dine and Learn will be an incredibly engaging session led by former teacher and art expert, Herve Le Guilloux.

With Renaissance Gastronomy. A passage between The Middle Ages and the Modern era, Mr. Le Guilloux will discuss the development and refinement of European cuisine from the 14th to 17th centuries.  Learn what shaped the diets of the era, as related through art, narratives and literature of the times. 

When did diet books first commonly appear? What might Leonardo da Vinci have eaten; what did his kitchen look like? What are the roots of the Italian cuisine we enjoy today? How were westernized table manners adopted and refined? Learn these, and other fun, fascinating fine points of the origins of current day gastronomy.  

From the educated classes and nobility, to the peasants and farmers - eating and the attainment of food in the Middle Ages evolved through cultural mores, and scientific and medical beliefs. Hear the interesting history of gastronomic practices and terminology, and how they evolved to define the social hierarchy of a culture. 

Price for this Dine and Learn session is $35, and includes a three-course dinner (Wednesday) or Luncheon (Thursday).

Luncheon - Thursday, March 7 at 12:30 at 1921 Mount Dora

Seating is Limited. Reserve by calling the museum at 352-385-0034.
