Generic gallery cheese is one of my pet peeves. Why does every art opening offer the same dull refreshments? Coming from people deeply concerned with aesthetics and meaning-making it seems a gauche oversight. Here is a missed opportunity to enhance a celebration of the particular artwork on display!
For Hiroshi Kumagai's art opening next week, I've worked up recipes for confections and libations to fit the occasion. My Transpacific Punch updates an old southern ladies' recipe of whiskey, green tea and cherries; while matcha cupcakes play to the artist's favorite flavors and aesthetics. I hope you'll join us!
