Jorge Rocha’s performative action Cooking in the landscape takes place on the next September 14th at 6.30 pm in the Estoi Palace with the participation of historian Francisco Lameira and landscape architect Gonçalo Duarte Gomes. The session will be preceded by a guided tour starting at 6pm.

Cooking in the landscape is part of the project www.PALATO.org and has been taking place in several Algarve Monuments. The initiative explores the relations between art, gastronomy and heritage, focusing on the associated gastronomies with each historical site.

A menu made from references found in between the lines of archeology is the starting point for a journey which also includes contemplating the landscape and analyzing the surrounding territory.

In each historical site, a makeshift infrastructure is set up where the artist together with the monument researchers, leads a performative action in a Talk Show format, cooking all together and live broadcasting it on the Internet, gathering the virtual and physical public.

After having performed at Alcalar Megalithic Monuments, Milreu Roman Villa, Lagos City Walls and Aljezur Castle, the project will now take place in Estoi Palace, with the participation of historian Francisco Lameira and landscape architect Gonçalo Duarte Gomes, being preceded by a guided tour by Francisco Lameira.

Ending the 2013 edition of Cooking in the Landscape, we will make a foray into baroque rococo, neoclassical, eclectic and romantic palace architecture.
This single-storey building, with interiors decorated in the eighteenth century French models, such as the Great Hall in Louis XV style, is surrounded by baroque style gardens. The Palace is now an hotel part of Pousadas de Portugal network.

Palato (www.palato.org) focuses on the intersection between art, gastronomy and heritage. Emerging essentially from a virtual space, it enhances the artistic and cientific promotion and creative process.
