IMMERSIVE ARTS & CULINARY EXPLORATION
The first event of the Food for Thought series, Fathomable, is an immersive arts and culinary experience produced by Villa Albertine and Delicious Future in partnership with Saint Joseph's Arts Society.
Kalie Granier, exhibiting artist and ecofeminist, Jonathan DeLong, director of REAP Climate Center, and chef Maria Finn, will guide us through a multisensory culinary experience to explore and question our many relationships to our oceans.
This will be the closing of Kalie's site-specific exhibit:
The Realm of Underwater Forests
The culinary voyage will begin with Kalie, Jonathan, and Maria sharing their favorite ocean delicacy - and how those foods contribute to their ecosystems renewal.
5-course tasting culinary experience
The tasting will feature local oceanic delights, including Olympia oysters, uni, and seaweeds.
To be mindful of allergies and preferences, the menu will also include a local, vegetarian fare sourced from Saint Joseph’s own organic Sonoma farm, Little Saints.
