Taste of Art: Le Piquenique

Join Maite Gomez-Rejón of ArtBites for an engaging conversation, guided gallery viewing, and hands-on culinary lesson inspired by the rich history of picnic traditions depicted in European art.

Discover the history of the picnic while viewing French and British paintings and decorative arts in The Huntington’s collection with Maite Gomez-Rejón of ArtBites. After the tour, sip spritzes in the Kitchen Garden, while Thomas Smith, manager of the Experiential and Teaching Gardens, shares information on seasonal planting. Harvest fresh herbs, and prepare seasonal salads and desserts suitable for a summer picnic.

This program will be held indoors in the Ahmanson Classroom. A portion of the class will include gallery and garden visits, so please wear comfortable walking shoes.
