The Food Artist
Now I’m a firm believer that every gallery opening should have great work to show their guests. But, I’m proud to say Anuvue, in addition, offers our guests the creations of a fabulous food artist. I first met Jenny Walker a few years back at one of my Halloween events. She lives around the corner and has 2 beautiful children. Jenny and I spoke one day in the gallery and it all lead to her designing her special menus, with loving attention to detail…and flavor! Jenny traveled around the globe before she was married and learned allot about the many different secrets to world class cooking. Secretly l think people come for her appetizers and the art is just a bonus…well maybe the booze is in there too.
I went to Jenny’s house just prior to the opening for 818 to get an inside peek into her food world… with all of you in mind. She had the food channel serenading her from small TV in the kitchen, while she created her edible magic. She was searing pork tenderloins in a pan (see…I know words like searing) when I banged on the front door with camera in hand. I watched as she coated them with some sort of mixture that had cumin, cinnamon and chipotle and it all smelled wonderful…even to a semi vegetarian. Folks, meet Jenny, The Food Artist…a very charming woman and provider of extraordinarily good things to eat 😉
BTW…our menu for the evening…shown above, Island Pork Tenderloin bites with Arugula and mandarin orange slices with citrus vinaigrette drizzle….. Bruchetta with Roasted Eggplant, Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Cheese…. Smoked Salmon and Cucumber rolls and to top it all off… outrageous brownies topped with raspberries! OH YEAH
