Almodovar’s Night. MoMa retrospective.
If you love the movies of Pedro Almodovar, enjoy the photos, menu, etc of my third thematic dinner in the great El Barrio’s Artspace PS109 in Harlem last November 20.
We celebrated with this Pop-Up Dinner “Almodovar’s Night” that the director Pedro Almodóvar had a retrospective in the MoMa from Nov 29 to Dec 17 of all his movies, beginning with his first film “Pepi, Luci, Bom, y otras chicas del montón (Pepi, Luci, Bom)” of 1980 and ending with his last film Julieta of 2016.
Had there been an Oscar for “best use of food in a film,” Pedro Almodóvar’s movies would surely win with the traditional recipes of Spain he used in almost all his filmography.
In this menu our guests enjoyed the most representative recipes of his movies.
Pedro Almodovar perpetually utilizes a consistent color palette in his films. I wanted to have the same atmosphere illuminating the table in each different moment of the dinner with red, blue, purple, yellow and blue.
