Press Releases – MCA CAFE’S NEW ALGERIAN MENU INSPIRED BY KADER ATTIA EXHIBITION

Posted on April 27, 2017
Until 30 July, the newly refurbished Café at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) will fuse modern Australian and Algerian flavours with a new menu inspired by the works of French Algerian artist Kader Attia, currently on display in the Level 1 galleries.

In his first solo exhibition in the Southern Hemisphere, Attia explores ideas of cultural exchange and the complex relationship between non-Western cultures and Europe, after decolonisation, through his art. The survey, curated by MCA Chief Curator Rachel Kent, encompasses over a decade of the artist’s practice, focusing on major installations that are contextualised by video and sculptural works.

The special menu created by Executive Chef Keith Higginson of Fresh Catering and culinary team at MCA Cafe aims to extend the museum experience, offering patrons a sensory connection to the exhibition through food through a mix of classic and contemporary dishes such as:

Lamb Kefta with Fennel, Mint, Feta & Pomegranate Salad ($18)
Merguez Sausage Rice Balls, Capsicum, Saffron & Almond Cream ($16)
Vegetable Tagine, Sweet Potato, Tomato, Preserved Lemon, Dates & Flat Bread ($26)
Grilled Chicken Brochettes, Ras el Hanout & Tabbouleh Salad ($28)

The menu will feature at the MCA Cafe until 30 July 2017. Open 7 days a week with late night Wednesdays, the Cafe is fully licensed and features an all day dining menu.
