Art Experience: A taste of modern Mexico

Rancho Mirage
Past Event

Taking Sunnylands’ special exhibition Carved Narrative: Los Hermanos Chávez Morado as inspiration, Maite Gomez-Rejon will explore the themes of food, identity, and authenticity in Mexican art and culinary history in a public presentation before a tasting of traditional chocolates.

Maite Gomez-Rejon has a BFA from the University of Texas at Austin, an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a Grande Diplome from the French Culinary Institute in New York City. Since 1995 Maite has worked in education departments of renowned museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, and the J. Paul Getty Museum, and has worked as a private chef. In 2007, Maite combined her two passions and founded ArtBites, art and culinary history combined with hands-on cooking instruction, which she teaches at museums across the country. Maite has been a guest on the Today Show, featured in Food & Wine magazine and interviewed on NPR’s Splendid Table.
