Robert Mondavi – “Even more importantly, it’s wine, food and the arts. Incorporating those three enhances the quality of life.”
Food, wine, and art truly enhances the quality of life. The latest issue of Food & Wine magazine has a scintillating article on the subject, FOOD und ART: Berlin’s Best Dinner Party. Writer Gisela Williams takes us into the world of restauranteur and ART aficionado, Stephan Landwehr as he prepares for a diner party in his Berlin home.
Williams writes that, “for someone who is not an artist, Stephan Landwehr’s life is very much shaped by ART. As Berlin’s premier framer, he is a major player in the city’s ART scene. A shrewd collector and occasional curator, Landwehr co-owns the five-year-old Grill Royal, which he funded in part by selling a museum-worthy painting by Scottish artist Peter Doig for $2 million. Landwehr is also known around Berlin for entertaining on a more personal scale. An invitation to his home is a coveted event for several reasons. The house, in a building that was a laundry for almost a century, is full of amazing ART.”
Perhaps the most interesting and curious example of how the line between ART and food can be blurred is found in Japan. The bento is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. These “boxed lunches” are prepared with a wonderful sense of beauty, creativity,and whimsy, plus they’re delicious!
