Here are a few highlights of the 2011 Edible Art Tour, from the Canyon Road portion of the tour. Everyone was seemed to be having a wonderful time while helping to raise money to benefit art education in Santa Fe.
At the Waxlander Gallery, Charles Dale, Executive Chef of Terra at Encantado Restort was offering a witty deconstructed Shrimp Cocktail. He wouldn’t share the secret of the tasty shrimp ribbons, so we can only guess.
We stopped at Darnell Fine Art and had a lovely chat with owner Rachel Darnell. Quail Run Chef Paul Honsiker’s Caldo Verde was delicious.
At the Jane Sauer Gallery Chef Lane Warner of La Plazuela at La Fonda served Gumbo to celebrate a Mardi Gras theme.
At the NuArt Gallery members of the Santa Fe Youth Symphony charmed us with chamber music.
At Giacobbe Fritz Fine Art, Mary Poppins aka Gallery Director Palin Wiltshire, shared cheerful observations with Edible Art tourers.
Debora Fritz vamps it up at gf contemporary’s Chicago themed offering, taking us back to the speakeasy days.
Gypsy Jazz group Le Chat Lunatique provided prohibition era music at gf contemporary.
These were a few of the over forty galleries pairing food and art for this year’s Edible Art Tour. If you missed it this year, plan to attend next year’s event. It’s always the last weekend in February. Not only is it fun, it benefits art education programs in Santa Fe Schools.
