To a chef, a plate is a canvas waiting to be bedecked with delicate, colorful works of food art. Athenaeum Hotel’s Executive Chef Ross Warhol takes that idea one step further with his third and final Praxis dinner, “Painted.”
“It’s going to be a dinner that is created with dishes from artists … van Gogh or Picasso or Chihuly. We’ll re-create their favorite meal or the most popular dish of their time and plate it in the same style that they painted or sculpted,” Warhol said.
“Painted” is a special five-course meal presented to a sold-out crowd of 50 people at 5:30 p.m. today at the Athenaeum Hotel.
