Don’t you dare call it a dessert. Artist Marina Abramovic has transformed the good ‘ol Baked Alaska into “a multisensory culinary intervention” now thrilling more adventurous diners at New York’s Park Avenue, the AvroKO-designed restaurant that overhauls everything from its menu and wine list to its interiors and name with the seasons. Executive chef Kevin Lasko (at far left) collaborated on the food experience, “Volcano Flambé,” which includes an exclusive take-away collection of Abramovic’s Spirit Cooking Menus, a recorded reading by the artist guiding diners (who use the headphones and digital audio device placed at their seats in wintry bleached-wood boxes) through the experience of the dish through sound, and the decadent dessert itself, set ablaze as it is served. We hear that the fiery treat is a journey through sensory contrasts: hot and cold, soft and hard, dark and light, sweet and savory. The project came about thanks to Creative Time, and the organization hopes that restaurant patrons have an appetite for more artist-chef collaborations. Janine Antoni, Paul Ramirez Jonas, and Michael Rakowitz will debut their delicious works, also whipped up with Lasko, later this year. Meanwhile, Abramovic’s Volcano Flambé will be available at Park Avenue Winter through March 20. And the best part? You don’t even have to stare her down for the last bite.
