In Artisseur’s mid-century space reminiscent of a Parisian atelier, discuss the history of the Parisian Salon with Maite, focusing on the informal conversations and flow of ideas found in Gertrude Stein’s home during the innovative Belle Époque, and its influence on later generations, including an artist who will share stories of his Parisian life and inspiration.

Then, prepare and savor a unique, yet simple, meal inspired by it.
