Day 118: Food For the Soul

My friend Tekia had her Breaking Bread catering event Thursday evening. (My Breaking Bread post goes into more detail about the event.) So much work went into the evening from so many people. Tekia and company spent hours frying chicken and preparing other southern foods, sculpting and painting the beautiful artwork on display, and figuring out the logistics all the way down to seating charts. They did a great job of bringing art and food together.

Day 101: Breaking Bread

My friend Tekia has an incredible catering opportunity coming up. It’s called Breaking Bread: A Soul Food Communion, which is part of The Dining Room Project: Art, Food, & The Ritual of Eating. Breaking Bread will be a buffet style meal based on family recipes. The event will also feature works of art by John C. Sutton III and Beth Nybeck. Below is a photo of Tekia with her newly acquired piece of art depicting the soul food experience, by the very talented Sutton. I’m very excited to experience this event in a couple of weeks!
