“Marina [Abramovic] wanted an exploding volcano, but it’s very difficult to make something that will explode on command. We tried some things with Diet Coke and Menthos, but we couldn’t get a controlled explosion. We decided the best way to get hot and cold was a traditional baked Alaska.”
–Kevin Lasko, executive chef at New York restaurant Park Avenue Winter, on Abramovic’s “Volcano Flambé,” in The New York Observer. The $20 “multisensory culinary intervention” is available at the restaurant through March 20.
