A dozen selections from the Janice Bluestein Longone Culinary Archive from our Special Collections Research Center have been perfectly paired with dishes from the International Museum of Dinnerware Design to provide a feast for the eyes.

A “perfect pairing” usually refers to a taste compatibility between wine and a food group, such as wine and cheese. For example, some believe a perfect pairing would be Cabernet with duck confit with turnips or Pinot Noir with bison rib eye steaks with roasted garlic — wines with sauces, spicy food, hors d’oeurvres, etc. But other things can be perfectly paired such as fruit and cheese, a couple, or a clothing selection.

Sometimes pairs are made more perfect when they are catalysts for the imagination. That is what curators Margaret Carney, Ph.D., and Juli McLoone are serving in "A Perfect Pairing of Cookbooks and Dinnerware." The right ingredients along with an inspired recipe creates a delicious and beautiful meal that is enhanced when the cuisine is presented on a thoughtfully curated table setting, or, we hope, in a thoughtfully curated exhibit. Bon Appetit!
