Hungry For A Meal That Matches Your Perfume?
We mean, if the scent of Drakkar Noir can make you nauseous, why couldn't a correspondingly good perfume make you eager to dig into a hearty four courses of gourmet food? Should work, right? Well, that's exactly what happened when the somewhat insane organizers of Methods and Madness
— a dinner series where chefs collaborate with non-culinary artists — took a trip to the Brooklyn studio of Anne McClain, the perfumer behind MCMC Fragrances
. Whereas you might have left McClain's lab thinking of far off wooded glades or, y'know, sexytimes, Methods and Madness left with a menu in mind.
On Sunday, July 29, at Jo's Restaurant
, the group will roll out four courses inspired by specific MCMC scents including a duck confited with jasmine flowers, oysters in beach plum jam, and — yummy — mexcal cocktails with basil seeds and yuzu. It all sounds like it'll smell as good as it will taste. To get in on the feast — and the wines supplied by Scribe Winery — hurry on over to their Gusta page to reserve your spot
. Arrive with your stomach empty and your nose clear, folks.
