We love Umami, and that’s not just because we like how it tastes. Our friends at Umami Festival view food through the lens of art with an innovative, problem-solving mission. Eternally seeking individuals who employ novel approaches in their creative works, and make use of food as both a medium and a subject, Umami Festival provides an arena in which artists and food professionals can collaborate.
That’s why we’ve enlisted their help for this year’s opening night fete, Food + Growing + Music, where we’ll celebrate the interconnected nature of art and food with a congress of creatives, foodies and creative foodies. On hand, beneath the bustling ground level of the Wythe Hotel, you’ll find work-song musicians Bennett Konesni and Edith Gawler of the Sylvester Manor Educational Farm as well as artist Leah Gauthier, chef-artist Anne Apparu and Quinciple co-founder Kate Galassi who’ve joined forces to create a one-of-a-kind site-specific installation. Get your tickets here!
