January 18, 2012 meeting
Michael J Cirino is the voice and creative director of the culinary performance art group a razor, a shiny knife, which hosts educational, social and theatrical experiences. The group produces events around the world that push the boundaries of what is possible and expected to happen around a kitchen and table. For the past five years, Mr. Cirino has sought to redefine the guest/host relationship and create a space in the culinary world for a different paradigms of social interaction around food that fits outside of the restaurant and home kitchen. This conversation will explore the traditional roles of the host and the guest, the rewards that each role seeks to obtain, and start a conversation on how we can all take these roles and pervert them into something ridiculous and inspiring.
