Mid-Century California & the West Coast Cook Book
California is known for sun, food, wine, arts, crafts, and architecture. Join museum educator and chef Maite Gomez-Rejon of ArtBites in an exploration of the casual lifestyle that the state's food and architecture introduced to the world. The discussion will focus on Artisseur's 1958 Richard Dorman FAIA-designed home where the salon will take place as well as Helen Evan Brown's The West Coast Cook Book of 1952, which laid the foundation to what became known as California cuisine. A simple, seasonal group meal inspired by the book will be prepared and enjoyed.
ARTISSEUR is a Los Angeles mid-century modern architectural space with a look to the future drawing inspiration from the past; a concept of social and cultural affinity where art, architecture, nature and community coexist.
