Exploring Art Movements Through Plated Desserts: The Flavors and Aesthetics of Bauhaus *In-Person* *NEW*

During this part lecture, part hands-on confectionary art class, we'll learn about the artists of the Bauhaus movement (1919-1933), and create a complex plated dessert that will represent their works, both in aesthetics and flavors. The confection we'll craft is comprised of circles of genoise soaked with Cointreau-infused orange syrup that are layered with bittersweet chocolate mousse and abloom with geometric bubble sugar shapes, perched atop a chocolate almond nougat box with peppermint patty pebbles at the base. This original recipe and design incorporates the abstract compositions and cheerful colors of Wassily Kandinsky with the minimalist box structures of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Whether one has synesthesia, possesses only a somewhat heightened sensory awareness, or is merely curious to explore how flavors correspond to shapes and colors, this class will inspire art history and confectionary enthusiasts to explore beyond the common sensory constraints.
