LA TATE MODERN DE LONDRES CREA UN MENÚ INSPIRADO EN ANDY WARHOL



Ya os dije hace poco que desde el próximo 13 de marzo y hasta el 6 de septiembre, la Tate Modern estrenará una enorme retrospectiva dedicada a Andy Warhol. Para celebrarlo, Tate Eats ha creado el menú Flavours from «The Factory», inspirado en la figura del fallecido rey del pop-art.

Sin lugar a dudas será la exposición más importante de la temporada para la Tate Modern, así que Jon Atashroo, el chef encargado de Level 9, el restaurante que habita la última planta del edificio, se ha dedicado a investigar de cerca la figura del artista para poder crear una serie de platos que examinan la curiosa relación que el artista tenía con la comida.

¿Hambriento ya?

 

Pâté for the Cat’. ‘Caviar with the Shar’. ‘Tuna Fish Disaster’. Just some of the intriguingly (if not invitingly) titled dishes gracing Tate Modern’s menu from March 2020. Created by head chef of Level 9 restaurant Jon Atashroo, ‘Flavours from "The Factory"’ is inspired by American artist Andy Warhol, whose life and work is the focus of this year’s blockbuster Tate Modern exhibition. It’s the first time the institution has exhibited Warhol in depth in two decades.

The artist had a curious relationship with food. ‘I was particularly interested in the social pressures Warhol felt when eating out, along with food as a recurring motif in his work and life,’ Atashroo explains. ‘My menu is based around this whilst incorporating a number of culinary anecdotes I uncovered during my research.’
