“There is a communion of more than our bodies when bread is broken and wine drunk. And that is my answer when people ask me: Why do you write about hunger, and not wars or love?”

~M.K.F. Fisher

The birth of our little experiment took our diners to a Parisian Cafe atmosphere…with painters, puppet storytellers, bistro music, dancers, a coyote puppet MC, and many other interesting characters.

.

They dined in the heat of summer upon four courses of delicacies made with mostly local ingredients.

from the brochure:

…Imagine yourself in your favorite restaurant, with your closest friends, aromas swirling about you.  The lights are low and flickering candles illuminate the faces of those you know so well.  You sip at your drink and savor small bites of surprisingly memorable flavors with a zesty newness.  Love, sorrow, laughter and euphoria are lurking in the shadowy corners of your memory.  Then, as if you wished it true, it all comes alive around you.  Sumptuous stories from Mama’s kitchen.  Music from a Parisian café.  Dances emerging from deep within the ovens of time.

 

 

 

 

 

You’ll travel through the history of your food, visit with predators and prey, and laugh deep in the belly as your tongue lingers with a sweet dessert.

 

A pinch of puppetry, a taste of the absurd, food for thought and the fruits of pleasure are all ingredients in this fantastic dining experience.  Feast your eyes, ears, mouth and soul on the stories which surround the rituals of eating. “
