Taking as inspiration the same poem that Falling Days is based around—The Conference of the Birds—a 12th century epic Sufi poem by Farid ud-Din Attar, LOOK, TOUCH, TASTE, SWALLOW presents a seven-course Persian gastronomic experience.
To find the Simorgh, the mythical Persian bird, an allegorical journey is undertaken by the birds across seven valleys: Quest, Love, Understanding, Detachment, Unity, Astonishment, and Annihilation.
The dinner will follow this course too.
Attar was also a druggist, composing poems at the family’s pharmacy, so expect mystical wonderment mixing with culinary chemistry.
