I recently learned of a lovely event in support of preservation, history, and the arts. Can you imagine? Spending the afternoon gazing upon The Philip Johnson Glass House, while grazing on a decadent display of fresh, farm to table delectables? To me, it sounds too good to be true. A dose of design inspiration in good taste, of architecture, design and culinary fare.
“In June 2011, The Philip Johnson Glass House, in partnership with Harvest to Heat: Cooking with America’s Best Chefs, Farmers, and Artisans, the critically-acclaimed cookbook of the same name, inaugurated Dine with Design - a benefit picnic featuring artisans and chefs from around the country. A literal feast for the eyes and palate, the event not only introduced the iconic site to a new audience, but also offered Glass House enthusiasts the opportunity to experience the property in a new way.”
On Saturday, June 9, The Glass House will once again invite the public to the Dine with Design modern picnic, where they will enjoy a unique culinary experience, meet renowned chefs and artisans, and explore the buildings, grounds and art collections located on the 47-acre site. If you are in the area, I am certain this will be a memorable and lovely day. I’d love to hear about it!
