Tickets: $55 or $65 with pairing.
Chefs in the Renaissance era were fascinated by ingredients that could arouse the libido, heighten pleasure and lead eventually to conception. In this talk food historian and author Ken Albala will unravel the logic of Renaissance aphrodisiacs, delving into herbal lore, nutritional theory, and folk medicine. (He will also explore why not being turned-on by food was an equally important topic!). Following the talk, indulge in food and drink inspired by historical recipes (and filled with amorous ingredients) at the Getty Restaurant. Complements the Renaissance Nude exhibition. Tickets $55 or $65 with hypocras/mead pairing (21 and over for pairing option). Complimentary parking
