Photos from our December supper club at Fleisher Art Memorial’s beautiful Sanctuary courtesy of Paul Gargagliano, Hazel Photo. Fleisher’s mission is to make art accessible to everyone, regardless of economic means, background, or artistic experience. Founded in 1898, the nonprofit organization committed to advancing the vision of it’s founder, Samuel S. Fleisher, who believed that art is one of society’s greatest assets and equalizers, and from the doorway of his Graphic Sketch Club, “invited the world to come and learn art.”
We wanted to go truly old school with the menu, inspired by the museum’s Verona style Catholic Church and all of the hearty foods we crave in December. Rich colors draped the tables and we wrote a menu combining innovative December favorites, like brandied potato soup, with old world Italian specialties – orange and porcini braised lamb leg – and our version of holiday classics: egg nog budino with spicy ginger snaps.
