“You're the Cream in My Coffee”:  A Toast to Music and Food
“You're the Cream in My Coffee”: A Toast to Music and Food
The relationship between music, food, and beverages has a long history that encompasses Western and non-Western cultures, and especially popular songs such as the one from 1928 given in the title. Musicologist Tina Frühauf (also author of the cookbook Dining with RILM) will awaken your intellectual appetite of this union in menu form. Structured in several courses (from aperitif to dessert), you will learn about savory and gastronomical references in the operas of Mozart, Rossini, and Verdi to vegetable orchestras, and the like. Regardless of your musical tastes, you can look forward to a scrumptious hour of a global musical feast.
