Notre Dame Chefs' Tavormina-Inspired Creations

Location: Campus Dining Locations

If the works of art on view in Seizing Beauty: Photographs by Paulette Tavormina have inspired your cooking, you aren't alone. Twelve chefs from Notre Dame's Campus Dining visited the Snite Museum of Art and found inspiration for new dishes in Tavormina's still lifes. Here's your chance to taste how the separate ingredients in each still life come together in a completed dish, and you don't have to do any of the cooking!
