Watershed ArtFeast – the food, the fun, the photos

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:
