The Morris-Jumel Mansion, Manhattan's oldest house, is stuffed with American history. Feast on History explored the life of Stephen Jumel with a selection of Bordeaux wine similar to what the French wine merchant imported to New York in the early 1800s.
If you love Italian food, wine, history and culture, but only have enough scratch for a staycation this summer, consider one of our Italian food and wine experiences to help you enjoy la dolce vita right here in New York City with an Italian cooking party or a walking food tour of Little Italy in the Bronx.
I did not consider ravioli a summer dish until I tried Antonio's ravioli at Borgo La Pietraia in Southern Italy. I had always considered a fresh filled pasta like this to be a long, labor intensive project with a heavy meal to enjoy at the end. Instead, this was quick, simple, light as a feather and fresh with the flavors of the season.
Bravo to the American Museum of Natural History for launching the A Night at the Museum sleepover for grownups! Surprised that an event with a $375 price tag sold out in one day? I'm not. Interactive, social, exclusive and meaningful events get people engaged with cultural institutions. And I'm certain that A Night at the Museum will likely convert many of the 150 guests into lifelong museum supporters.
On May 1st, Feast on History teamed up with Popcorn Productions to present Feast on Innovation, an evening of interactive workshops and a Renaissance Feast inspired by the genius of Michelangelo. We engaged the unusual spaces at Science House, a “cathedral of imagination” to see how the Michelangelo and the ideas of the Italian Renaissance could influence the future of technology and innovation.
