Title

Note on Food

Subject

A note on the theatre of fine dining.

Description

This note on food from LeRoy Neiman explores the performative nature of fine dining. Furthermore, the through line of this poetic, fragmented writing seems to be the haute cuisine’s focus on timing. Neiman has ornamented the document with an illustration of a gravestone (1921-20); the artist was born in 1921.
