Wednesday night marked the second ArtFeast adventure at Jennifer Schwartz Gallery. The first ArtFeast dinner with photographer Lori Vrba and Wisteria chef Jason Hill was a smashing success that got a lot of great press and attention. The word definitely got out, because this ArtFeast was oversold with a waiting list, but I can’t say that’s a surprise – between Joe Truex’s amazing cooking and Jeff Rich‘s gorgeous imagery, we were bound to hit it out of the park.
After champagne and delicious bites, we feasted. . .
- first course: Smoked trout, endive and purple cress salad with toasted pecans
- second course: East coast crab and shrimp gateaux, wild asparagus, gribiche sauce
- third course: Slow-roasted duck breast, sweet potato farrotto, cherry sauce
- fourth course: Cinnamon spiced sorghum cake, vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce
Now that your mouth is excessively watering (the meal was so, so good – and the art talk was incredible too). . . here are some photos:
