Here at MR PORTER we believe that the enjoyment of cooking, eating and drinking is an important element of a life well lived, which is why we asked a select group of men we admire to cook us their signature dish.
In the first of our new MR PORTER series Mr Damon Brandt, a New York-based art dealer and consultant, shares his recipe for a healthy supper of quinoa, prawns and tomatoes, served with a fig, rocket and pea-shoot salad. Mr Brandt's dish is easy to emulate, quick to prepare and perfect for a light weekday supper. He doesn't reveal what he'd drink with it, but we'd go for a glass or two of Albariño wine, from Galicia in northwest Spain.
Mr Brandt opened his first gallery in SoHo in the early 1980s and currently runs an art advisory service out of his loft in TriBeCa, working with high net worth private collectors and international public institutions. Salt Mine Projects is the company that oversees his diverse range of curatorial projects.
