When art and food become one

For those who love art and food, this may just be their match made in heaven.

You gotta wonder, how many times did you think about eating a piece of art? Something that made you salivate so badly you just wanted to go on a limb and have a lick, or a bite, at the expense of falling asleep on the toilet that night?

It would sure make an interesting story, especially before dinner.

But this time, it’s not the case, because this event, which is organized by the Sooke Fine Arts, will allow you to both dine and admire the art of food, and how you can turn your cooking pan into art.

For this event, which will take place at the Sooke Harbour House on Nov. 22 from 2 to 4 p.m., it’s important to keep one thing in mind: the visual sensation of a dish is as important as its flavour.

This is also a chance to impress your guests at the next dinner party with attractive table settings and decorations, artistic serving vessels and an attractive presentation that will blur the line between food and art.

Visitors will also learn about table decoration and table setting, and plating, both single and buffet-style.

For that extra touch, door prizes are also available, made possible by local Sookies, Phoebe Dunbar and Judith Hale.

Space is limited to just 30 people, so be sure to register ($20 per person) before Nov. 18.
