Dear Mary Jane,
We are so happy you thought of SFMOMA to fulfill your salad needs for your wife’s birthday. I am hoping to clarify a few things to be sure we have your order together, as 3pm quickly approaches.
When you say chicken grilled with Caesar salad, do you want the chicken grilled separately? We do have some great looking chicken by the artist Martin Parr — it makes me hungry just thinking of it. This chicken is always served extra crispy.Parr also offers a salad pairing with this chicken, though I am afraid it is not of the Caesar variety. If you are unsure Mr. Parr’s recipe will please your guests, we may be able to outsource the work:
Of course I am not sure Dodie will have the capacity to serve up all 150 salads. If your delivery man is as good as he sounds, and you really want to go for spectacle, I suggest you look to get ahold of Alison Knowles. Last spring Alison recreated her famous Fluxus performance Make a Salad on the NYC High Line, wielding the shovel to scoop the completed salad into large bowls, serving hundreds of audience members. That would be a party your wife would most certainly never forget.
I do hope you this information is helpful to you. If you have further questions, do ring me at any time. Here is my phone, which unfortunately is not cellular:
