This exhibit "revisits Goya through the work of Dalí on the former’s series of prints Los Caprichos. Dalí shows us a total work of art, consistent with Goya’s thinking, marked by a programmatic and enlightened character that reconciles the multiple sources of knowledge from Baroque tradition, the Classical world and the French Encyclopedists. The exhibition features 40 prints, 17 by Goya and 23 by Dalí, inviting us to discover two great masters through intelligence and humor."
Exhibit opens on March 7, 2015 and ends on April 4, 2015.
"With something for enthusiasts and beginners alike, The Color of Sake will host 17 of Japan’s best sake brewers, representing different regions, brewing techniques and taste experiences. Guests will have the chance to sip, savor and learn about as many as 44 of the most sought-after and highly decorated sakes available to the U.S. market. While many of these Sakes are available in New York, some brewers and Sakes will be making their U.S. debut."
The Color of Sake takes place at Astor Center in New York on Tuesday, February 17 from 6:30 to 9:00 pm.

Each and every February 2, La Chandeleur is a day to fill your tummy with comfort food.
Crepes can be sweet, they can also be savoury like the 'Andouille Sausage-Cheese-Egg' crepe (below) which I discovered on the menu of Creperie du Vieux Port located in Port Haliguen, Quiberon in my native Morbihan (Brittany). They are celebrating their 40th anniversary.
Dominique and Christophe Cachat in National Crepe Day ( on now defunct blog 'A Taste of France', February 2010) note that "La Chandeleur, celebrated on February 2, is originally a religious holiday, yet today it is known as the day of crêpes. The story is that Pope Gélase gave crêpes to the pilgrims who arrived in Rome. The crêpes with their rond shape and golden color, signified the sun and helped Spring to arrive."
"Stir your passion with this hands-on workshop led by certified sake sommelier Chris Johnson.
