TABLE TALK: Claire M. Tallarico & Tonia Di Risio

February 6, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Food + art = magic.

That is the core idea behind Alchemy, an international artist residency held in Prince Edward County, that brings together 12 artists for 12 days to explore the synergy between artistic and culinary practices in a community setting. Led by founder Claire M. Tallarico and Tonia Di Risio, the collaborations, conversations and connections that emerge can be profound. Claire & Tonia will be talking about how food sharing and art making can be a powerful vehicle for community building.

Alchemy explores the relationships between artistic practice and the growing, cooking and sharing of locally cultivated food in a community setting. Originally founded at Artscape Gibraltar Point on Toronto Island, Alchemy is now held each summer in Prince Edward County.

Table Talks include a seasonal meal prepared by The Depanneur founder Len Senater.

This month’s Table Talk will be a little different than usual; in the spirit of Alchemy’s interactive culinary practice, we will be serving this as a family-style dinner party. There will be soup for when people arrive (we ask that you try and be there by 6:30pm), and the dinner will be served at 7pm at 3 tables of 8 people, with a guest Alchemist/facilitator at each table guiding the conversations.

Celeriac, Leek & Potato Vichyssoise with toasted hazelnuts (#vegan)

Creamy yellow corn mamaliga (soft polenta, Romanian-style), served with roasted vegetable ratatouille (#vegan).
Sour cream, feta cheese and mititei (small, skinless Romanian sausages) will be served optionally alongside, as well as cucumber and dill salad.

An Alchemy-inspired dessert will be prepared by Claire and Tonia and shared with the tables, along with tea or coffee.

#vegetarian, #vegan and/or #glutenfree options will be available.
Doors open at 6pm, dinner/talk/activities starts at 7pm promptly, so please try and arrive by 6:30.
$25 (+HST) — includes dinner


Every month The Depanneur invites a local food personality to talk about something that interests them while Dep founder Len Senater cooks dinner for everyone.

This Table Talk is presented in collaboration with Artery
Every space is a stage. Artery lets anyone bring creative experiences to life, in places you may not expect.
