TriBeCa Lunch with Marthe Keller

This past Saturday, New York abstractionist Marthe Keller hosted Victory Club in her TriBeCa home. As an internationally renowned artist, Marthe has paintings, collages and prints in the permanent collections of the Met, MoMa and the Whitney Museum.

At every Victory Club event, we incorporate some of the artist's own work into the tablescape. On Saturday, we came across never before seen tiles that Marthe did 10 years ago. We were inspired to use them as chargers.

Before the seated meal, Marthe showed members and friends around her home while talking about the development of her vertical style. Everyone sipped on Bodvàr of Sweden rosé as they toured the loft.

The menu took inspiration from Marthe's own work and her childhood in Italy.

For the first course, members and friends were presented with Zucchini Carpaccio, tossed with toasted almonds and parmesan cheese.

For the second course, members and friends had ramp-pesto filled ravioli. Paying homage to Marthe's vertical lines, the ravioli were striped. Chefanie used spinach, tomato, squid ink and plain pasta dough to create the gorgeously striped ravioli.
