Culinary Cinema Series featuring "Babette's Feast" & French Classic Cuisine Dec 6
OMA Culinary Cinema Series
December 6, 2008 5:30 PM
If you enjoy classic films, epicurean delights and fine art, then you should attend the Oceanside Museum of Art's Culinary Cinema Series on Saturday December 6th at 5:30 PM. Third in our Culinary Cinema Series that pairs food themed films with mouth-watering cuisine, "Babette's Feast" is presented in the beautiful modern setting of the museum. Academy Award winning director Gabriel Axel tells the story of two elderly Danish sisters whose pious life is humorously altered with the unexpected arrival of Babette Hersant, a 19th century Parisian political refugee who cooks them a French feast they will never forget.
Join us at the museum for this delightful film and delectable French cuisine prepared by master chef Carol Blomstrom. Dinner includes hors d'oeuvres of tiny toast with crème fraiche and caviar, artichoke mousse on sesame crackers, salad with haricot vert and red-onion, entrée of coq au vin over noodles, and white and dark chocolate mousse for dessert.
Reservations required in advance, limited to 100 guests. Cost is $60 for OMA members, $75 for non-members. Vegetarian entrees available upon request. Call the museum at 760-435-3721 for reservations. 5:30 PM pre-film reception, wine & hors d'oeuvres. 6:00 PM "Babette's Feast" screening, dinner following the film.
