On Thursday, March 28, The Norm, the restaurant at the Brooklyn Museum, will play host to an installment of Chefs’ Talk & Taste, a series of programs orchestrated by Great Performances, a sustainability-oriented catering and events company, to complement the exhibit “Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving.”
Chef Sue Torres (The ‘21’ Club, La Grenouille, Isabella’s, Lola’s, Arizona 206) will be on hand to moderate a discussion with a panel of acclaimed chefs about their commitment to bringing traditional Mexican cuisine to an American audience; how Mexican food and culture have become ingrained in New York City; and their deep personal and professional roots in our community.
During this provocative discussion, a classic celebratory Mexican dinner will be presented family-style, showcasing albóndigas (the savory Mexican meatball soup), flautas de camarones, and gorditas de plátano dulce.
The meal will get off to a festive start with a complimentary traditional Oaxacan toast based on Del Maguey Single Village Mezcal, and a selection of Bocanegra Pilsner and Dunkel will be available to cool the palate at additional cost.
Tickets start at $85 — including talk, dinner, and mezcal toast — and are available here.
The Norm at the Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, 718-230-0897.
