Art-Loving Foodies: Eat and Learn at the MFAH

PersianOn Thursday evening, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston is presenting another of its Art+Cuisine series, this time on Persian cuisine. The program begins with a brief presentation and conversation by Sussan Babaie, an internationally acclaimed art historian; and Najmieh Batmanglij, who has been hailed as “the guru of Persian cuisine.” Afterward, guests are invited to enjoy a tasting buffet of Persian foods. The doors open at 6pm; the program starts at 6:30pm. Tickets are a bit pricey ($40 for members, $50 for nonmembers), but it’s an educational dinner.

For those on a budget who just want to work up a good appetite, the Culinary Institute LeNôtre has a free monthly Culinary Movie series. Who knew? This month’s, Somm, is also on June 11 (1:15pm and 6:15pm). Next month’s will be Like Water for Chocolate.
