Cooking with the Impressionists: Toulouse Lautrec
19 Oct 2019, 10am-1pm
One of Lautrec’s favourite hang-outs was the Moulin de la Galette, a popular restaurant-cabaret in a windmill in Montmartre where he painted some of his most well-known works. Van Gogh, Pissarro and Renoir also painted the Moulin de la Galette! The Moulin specialised in serving both savoury and sweet galettes made from the flour milled on-site in the moulin. Today’s dishes recreate a savoury mushroom and bacon galette and a sweet pear galette.
