Congratulations to the winners of our inaugural Kitchen Window Culinary Arts Competition: local photographer Rebecca Phan-Tretter and Chef Sarah Master of Barbette restaurant located in Uptown. Click here to download the recipes that led to their victory!
At the 2012 Uptown Art Fair, crowds watched the Twin Cities’ hottest chefs and most creative artists battle for culinary supremacy! The Kitchen Window Culinary Arts Competition teamed chefs and artists to create the most dazzling culinary art. Teams were given four key ingredients and 30 minutes to design a unique and flavorful dish and a matching piece of visual art. Local celebrities judged each creation and crowned a champion on the final day of the fair.
Teams consisting of one chef and one artist each received the same three mandatory ingredients, including artisan chocolate from Minneapolis chocolatier B.T. McElrath, beer from Schell’s Brewing Co. and rice from Gourmet Rice, which they included—along with a unique secret ingredient—in both a dish and a piece of visual art. All teams had access to other tasty and visually stunning ingredients from the Whole Foods Market pantry.
