An Evening with Author, Justin Spring

Justin Spring - Author

In January, we were fortunate to welcome New York-based writer, Justin Spring to the Golf House restaurant for a unique dining experience with our members.

The evening began with a brief lecture by Justin about his latest book, “The Gourmands’ Way.”  Released in October 2017, the book shares how French food became popular in America following World War II and was influenced by icons such as Julia Child, M.F.K. Fisher, Richard Olney and others.

Following the talk, members shared a single long dining table and enjoyed a five-course dinner inspired by the historical figures in the book and prepared by Executive Chef, Jim Mercer and his team.  The menu included offerings such as Duck Rillettes, Potage Germiny (Sorrell Bisque) and Pork Roast with Prunes. Food and Beverage Manager and Sommelier, Nick Lisotto paired specific wines to best complement each course.

The evening concluded with all participants receiving a personally autographed copy of “The Gourmand’s Way.”

Justin is the author of many monographs, catalogs, museum publications, and books, including the biography Fairfield Porter: A Life in Art (Yale University Press, 2000) and Paul Cadmus: The Male Nude (Universe, 2002).  He has been the recipient of a number of grants, fellowships, and awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship and the International Association of Art Critics Best Show Award.  He has held research fellowships from Yale University, Brown University, Radcliffe College and Amherst College.  His monograph on Paul Cadmus was a finalist for the Lamda Literary Award in Art History.
