 “Taliesin in winter was a frosted palace roofed and walled with snow, hung with iridescent fringes, the plate-glass of the windows shone bright and warm through it all as the light of the huge fire-places lit them from the firesides within, and streams of wood-smoke from a dozen such places went straight up toward the stars.”     
:: Frank Lloyd Wright, An Autobiography

Join us for a winter Valentine evening. Imagine. You and your sweetheart drive up to a house near the top of a hill on a sprawling estate in southwestern Wisconsin. You enter a spectacular, but cozy, room. A fire is roaring. Cocktails are flowing and the aroma of a gourmet feast is in the air. You mingle with other guests. So very few. Only those with distinguished taste will share in this exclusive, intimate dinner party at one of the most renowned and remarkable homes in the world…Taliesin.

Featuring Chef Rob Grisham from Isthmus Dining Company, Madison, WI

For his first Taliesin Dinner of 2018, Chef Rob Grisham will create a 7-course menu that gives the guest a true sense of this spectacular place: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin. Chef Grisham’s menu is dictated by his desire to use food and resources that are grown on the Taliesin estate.



The founder and Chef of Isthmus Dining Company is Rob Grisham, a self-taught chef, and Wisconsin native.  He was the Head Chef of Brasserie V (Madison) for its first seven years before moving to Portland, OR, and eventually found his way back to Madison where he created Isthmus Dining Company. 

Isthmus Dining Company is a nomadic restaurant concept that serves perpetually changing, seasonally-inspired food at different locations throughout the Madison area, as well as private in-home tasting dinners. It is committed to sourcing the highest quality ingredients, as well as supporting the region's farmers, purveyors, and producers.
