Unami Food & Art Festival: Edible Architecture Gala
Sullivan St Bakery is proud to support the Edible Architecure Gala.
The life of Antonin Carême, the recognized founder of French grande cuisine, is the inspiration for the experimental documentary video entitled Meringue Diplomacy, produced and directed by Terri Hanlon. Umami food and art festival is proud to present a sneak-peek of this original work before its official premiere in April. The evening will open with original hors d’oeuvres, special cocktails and other edible-architecture treats, and will close with chef Sam Mason’s fabulous desserts inspired by the video. Intermezzi by composer Fast Forward will be woven throughout the evening.
This special collaboration between chef and artist offers a unique opportunity to engage with both the food and the art in new and exciting ways. Proceeds from the event go to support Umami food and art festival’s mission to open avenues of collaboration between artists and culinary professionals, present new ways to look at art and to integrate art into daily life, and offer an environment for non-traditional mediums and forms. Tickets to the gala are $150 and include, in addition to the screening, cocktails, tastings, desserts, a chance to hear from both the artist and the chef, and a limited addition Umami gift bag.
