Palettes at the Denver Art Museum has just launched a new three-course tasting menu to compliment "Passport to Paris," the Denver Art Museum's newest exhibition, opening October 27. This particular menu utilizes seasonal Colorado ingredients to create dishes that are masterpieces in their own right, artfully presented and inspired by Claude Monet's impressionistic landscapes and pastel colors, as well as Van Gough's French countrysides. Dishes offered as part of the three-course menu include salmon tartare with apple and citrus salad, crispy crepes, micro arugula and tarragon creme fraiche; seared diver scallops with cauliflower crab raviolis, asparagus, chanterelles, blood orange and shellfish velouté; and cranberry financier with coconut maple meringues, cranberry compote and ginger port reduction, among others. The menu will be offered in conjunction with Palettes’ seasonal à la carte menu throughout the duration of the exhibit.
Passport to Paris brings together works from some of the world’s most beloved artists, including Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and more. This exhibition's trio of shows focuses on French art from the late 1600s to early 1900s, and explores changes in art and society during three important centuries in art history.
