Recipe: Black Manhattan with Ambassador Olivia Muniak


Even though she grew up in New York City, Olivia Muniak has always had an affinity for the airy sleazy sensibility of Italian aperitif time. She sees a long, quiet meal as an antidote to the hustle and bustle of everyday life, as a way to slow down and be present.

Its entertainment philosophy is simple: tables should be candlelit, start the evening with a cocktail, and savor every bite of carefully prepared food between sips of fine wine and conversation (and lots of laughs).

In August 2019, fueled by the idea of ​​meals as a meaningful form of connection, Olivia launched La Cura Supper Club (La Cura means ‘the cure’ in Italian), a six-course family dinner, hosted in a home private or in a unique location in Los Angeles.

In addition to a regular dinner club, La Cura offers a full service catering, organization of events and parties. The website serves as a living compendium of what she cooks and a purchasable edition of her favorite entertainment and cooking essentials. Olivia lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
