This Saturday 21st September Can Bordoy will host a performance by Valencian artist Empar Boix, where she will bring a blank 2×2 metre canvas to life in just 2 hours. This painting, like much of her previous work, will have a feminine theme, in the existence of parallel realities and the tyranny of the body. In addition to this one-off performance, Can Bordoy Grand House & Garden will also be temporarily adorned with artworks by other artists, including Empar Boix, such as a large wooden sculpture that will be placed within the building’s central staircase, all of them kindly lent to Can Bordoy by AHOY gallery .
Botànic Restaurant in Can Bordoy will offer two types of innovative cuisine: a selection of artistic tapas which can be savoured, cocktail-style, in Can Bordoy’s entrance, or as a tasting menu which can be enjoyed, with prior reservation, on the establishment’s beautiful terrace.
Can Bordoy Grand House & Garden understands that art is a global activity, and this also pertains to the wonderful gastronomic creations that chef Andrés Benítez makes in Botànic restaurant. For this reason, great cuisine will also be present at Nit de l’Art in Can Bordoy. It can be savoured in two distinct formats: cocktail-style with a selection of colourful and tasty tapas which can be purchased and enjoyed in the courtyard entrance; or as a seated tasting menu featuring artistic dishes, which will be served, prior reservation, on the establishment’s terrace. In both cases Andrés Benítez has taken inspiration from Empar Boix’s artworks, both in her colourful, feminine universe, and in the idea that sometimes things are not what they seem and that they maintain parallel realities. He has used these ideas to create delightful cuisine that will please even the most demanding of palates: a pickled tomato snack, smoked aubergine steak tartare, orzo risotto with squid in its ink, roasted sweet potato with beef, peach and carob chutney and lavender ice cream with rosemary and Mallorcan almonds.
