Food as Art

Friday night I helped with a great event here in Hot Springs. The Spa City Local Foods Market in conjuction with the Art Church hosted a combined evening of fine finger foods and fine art. This event was held during the 20th anniversary of the Hot Springs Gallery Walk.

The Food as Art Tasting was used as a way to showcase fresh, locally grown and raised produce and meats. Spearheaded by Brittany Lindon, we provided a delectable feast that tickled the taste buds of all who tried. Our finger foods menu consisted of Chipotle Sirloin on Gorgonzola Crostini, Peppered Steak with Garlic Crostini and Horseradish Cream, Lemon Verbena Lamb and Pok meatballs, Panko Crusted eggplant with Herbed Goat Cheese and Pomegranate Molasses, Crudite, and Coconut Shiso Flan.

The ingredients were provided by Arkansas Natural Produce, Arkansas Natural Meats, Petit Jean Natural Meats, Backyard Girl, Beadtanical Betty and a few others (sorry I can't remember all the names).

The Art Church provided the space for the event as well as live music and a variety of artists work to bring in folks on the Gallery Walk.

We all had a great time and so did the folks who came by. Thanks for supporting the Spa City Local Foods Market and the Art Church.
