TALK: Dali & Food, Friday Feb. 3 at 6:30 p.m.

Please join us on this special evening when Fr. Robert Keffer, OSB, will share his thoughts on Salvador Dali and the elaborate dinner parties Dali shared with his wife Gala and their coterie of interesting and influential friends.

“This will be on Dali and food, in honor of the reissue of Dali’s cookbook this last Christmas season,” Fr. Keffer says. “This book is entitled “Les Diners de Gala” and contains actual recipes, where Dali collaborated with the great French restaurants - Maxim’s, Tour D’Argent, Lasserre, and La Gare de Lyon.”

First published in 1973, “Les diners de Gala” revealed some of the sensual, imaginative, and exotic elements that made up the notorious gatherings Dali and his wife Gala (1894–1982) shared with friends. It was republished by Taschen in 2016 ($59.99).

Admission to the Feb. 3 talk at Shaw Galleries is free, but reservations are required by e-mailing
