The Flying Cook
OSCAR Tschirky, the legendary maître d’hôtel at the Waldorf, is credited with creating the Waldorf salad. He developed many dishes during the 1800s, and launched his cook book Oscar of the Waldorf in 1896. We have added a few ingredients to this signature salad, for extra flavour. Enjoy special people; it’s easy to make, and healthy, mouthwatering food for the whole family. 1 lettuce
1 cup walnuts, slightly toasted 2 sweet apples, cored and chopped 3 sticks of celery, thinly sliced
1 cup seedless grapes, sliced in half Freshly ground black pepper
Whisk mayonnaise, honey and lemon juice together in a medium-size bowl. Arrange lettuce, add apples, celery and grapes.
Sprinkle walnuts and drizzle dressing over the salad. THE UJ Art Gallery is hosting Continuing Conversations, an exhibition of portraits from the permanent collection of MTN and the University of Johannesburg, as well as selected portraits from MTN and UJ’S joint Emerging Artists Portrait Development Programme.
Following last year’s successful Shifting Conversations, the exhibition which engaged with works of colonial and post-colonial narratives, the curatorial focus in Continuing Conversations is on portraits depicting concepts of power, the juxtaposition of power and powerlessness, identity and body politics, perceptions of the other and the exotic, memory, and the masks we wear.
Works included are by artists such as Gerard Bhengu, Reshada Crouse, Wilma Cruise, Phillemon Hlungwani, Maggie Laubser, Judith Mason, George Pemba, Cecil Skotnes, Irma Stern and Edoardo Villa.
About 40 have been selected from across the UJ collection, consisting of 1 500 artworks; and the MTN collection, consisting of 1 400 artworks. The exhibition is curated by Niel Nortje, manager of the MTN Art Collection, and Annali Dempsey, curator of UJ’S Art Collection.
The exhibition will be showing at the UJ Gallery, Auckland Park, from October 17-November 21.
