Boston-based Chef Louis DiBiccari, of Chef Louie Nights and Storyville, is partnering with local experience site Gilt City Boston and The Boston Center for Adult Education to bring to life a unique event aiming to unite and celebrate the worlds of culinary and visual arts with, CREATE: Six Artists, Six Chefs, One Canvas, taking place on Sunday, June 3, 2012, from 2pm to 6pm at the Boston Center for Adult Education.
Local rising artists such as !ND!V!DUALS, Josh Falk, and Emily Lombardo, will be paired with local up-and-coming culinary talent such as Jason Cheek of KO Prime, Suzi Maitland of Trina’s Starlite Lounge, Brandon Arms of Garden at the Cellar and Douglas Rodriguez of Clio (More to be announced).
Each chef will be challenged with creating a gastronomic offering inspired by an artist he or she is paired with.
“This concept has been kicking around in my head for years now. I’ve always wanted to try and do something inspirational and entertaining, bridging the gap between fine arts and culinary arts. The chef’s have to create a composition based on the subject matter of the artist. I think this is going be wild,” said Louis DiBiccari.
The event will also feature a piece of artwork being created on-site, to be auctioned off at the end of the event, as well as several works of art by each participating artist, available for purchase on-site.
Guests will also enjoy creations by up-and-coming mixologists Kevin Mabry of JM Curley, who will concoct cocktail’s using Tito’s Vodka, and Bruno Prado of Storyville. Other partners for the evening include 90+ Cellars, Taza Chocolate, Open Blue Cobia, Island Creek Oysters and Cakes by Erin.
A percentage of proceeds will benefit Lovin’ Spoonfuls, a 501c3, non-profit organization that facilitates the recovery and distribution of perishable and unserved foods that would otherwise be thrown away and wasted.
