Cuisine des Artistes: 2006
Cuisine des Artistes is an annual spring fundraiser held for the DC Arts Center. This unique event showcases the talents of local area chefs and artists who collaborate to create works of edible art. The night begins at 6:30 with an hour long cocktail hour featuring artist produced appetizers. At 7:30 the night moves into a second room showcasing a new décor and the main courses of the evening. It is rounded out with a desert hour featuring among other things, eclectic entertainment that has in past years included poetry readings, as well as musical and performing artists.
Previous cuisine evenings have included a George Bush bean dip and tapas served from the front half of an antique car. This year's Cuisine will take place on May 10, 2006 at the H. Leonard's Mansion on O Street NW. Past participating artists and chefs have included Margaret Boozer, G. Byron Peck and Judy Jashinski, Bart Seaver (Saint-ex), Josh Wigham (Zaytinia) and Carol Greenwood. The great entertainment and edible art are sure to make this one of the "must see" events of the year.
