Art Inspiration from Local Chefs

| @triadfoodies

West End Millworks is hosting an art-inspired evening with Reynolda House Museum of American Art on Sunday, Oct. 9 at 5:30 p.m. Local chefs will be preparing a five-course tasting menu and drink pairings provided by Winston-Salem craft brewers and distillers.

It’s all part of Reynolda House’s fall exhibit, Grant Wood and the American Farm, which explores the central role of the family farm in American identity.

Claire Calvin of the Porch Kitchen and Cantina is organizing the event and said they’ve wanted to partner with Reynolda House. When they heard about the Grant Wood exhibit, they knew it would be a perfect fit. “Farm and seeing food as art, here in the city of Arts, it’s a great connection,” Calvin said. “Each chef will use art from the American Farm exhibit as inspiration for their dish.”

Here’s a look at the roaming menu:

Start at …Hoots Roller Bar with food by Chef Harrison Littell of The Honey Pot and a beer tasting by Hoots Roller Bar & Beer Co.

Tour Sutler’s with food by Chef Tim Grandinetti of Spring House Restaurant, Kitchen, & Bar/ Quanto Basta: Italian Eatery & Wine Bar & a gin tasting by Sutler’s Spirit Co.

Relax in The Porch with food by Chef Michael Daugherty of The Porch Kitchen and Cantina and a seasonal margarita tasting.
