Hungry For Hemingway . . .
This sounds pretty cool.
Noted author Ernest Hemingway was a big fan of chef Georges "Kiki" Cuisance's food back when he was cooking at various restaurants in France.
So we can only imagine how thrilled Cuisance was when he was asked to host a three-course, Hemingway-themed dinner to launch the book, "Hunting for Hemingway," written by Diane Gilbert Madsen.
Since Hemingway was known to enjoy a well-made cocktail (there are many, many drinks named in his honor), guests will be first treated to a martini inspired by the author. Then the chef will whip up some of Hemingway's favorite dishes, including dessert, when Madsen will read from her book. Apparently, the legendary author lost a bunch of manuscripts back in the early 1920s, and her novel explores the idea of what would have happened if they had been discovered.
The Hemingway-inspired dinner happens at 6pm Oct. 5. Reservations are highly recommended; limited seating. $37 per person.
