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).

Dinner - Wednesday, March 6 at 6:30 at 1921 Mount Dora

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

1921 WINE DINNER WITH BILLECART-SALMON OF MAREUIL-SUR-AŸ (PREVIEW MENU AND PURCHASE HERE)

1921 WINE DINNER WITH BILLECART-SALMON OF MAREUIL-SUR-AŸ (PREVIEW MENU AND PURCHASE HERE)

The champagnes of Maison Billecart-Salmon are above all created thanks to the knowledge of the men who rigorously cultivate an estate of 100 hectares, obtaining grapes from an area totaling 300 hectares across 40 crus of the Champagne region.

The majority of the grapes used for vinification come from a radius of 20km around Epernay, where the Grand Crus of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay co-exist, in the ethereal vineyards of the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs.

It all started here in 1818 when Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon were married, marking the creation of their Champagne House. This has been a family story since the beginning with Louis Salmon, brother of Elisabeth and a passionate oenologist, getting involved in the creation of the wines.

Thus, over 7 generations, each member of the family has endeavored to continue the family tradition, staying faithful to the same motto: “Give priority to quality, strive for excellence”.
