Debuting Nourish and the Culinary Art Car or Han Solo and Sulu got nothing on me!

Hey everybody!  Saturday was Nourish’s opportunity to unveil the Culinary Art Car at one of our events.  The Culinary Art Car is a kinetic sculpture through which messages of sustainability, healthy eating and local foods are brought to our community through this collaboration between the John Michael Kohler Arts Center and Lakeshore Technical College. Last year at the fundraiser (which is coming up on October 3 this year).  A Plymouth family had the winning bid to bring us and the Art Car to their home for a catered party!  It was a great event with a ton of fun had by all and the food was well liked!  We served curried chicken salad in cucumber boats, sweet potato and horseradish croquettes, blueberry cream cheese wontons, caesar salads in parmesan cups, mini BLT quiches, and trio of brushcettas (tomato basil, mushroom, or white bean).  All items were, of course, focused on local grown and sourced food.  We had produce from the farmer’s markets, Springdale Farm, and our home garden.

Piloting this “sexy beast”, as designer Mac Maker put it, is one of the highlights of my career!  Such an honour to drive this masterpiece around.  People stop, stare, smile, wave, give a thumbs up, and then giggle or chuckle when I press the crazy horn!  None of this would have been possible without the great volunteers we had from auction to prep to execution and of course, clean up.  I am blessed to work with people that there because they WANT to help and truly put the concerns of others before themselves.  Sounds like what restaurant service ought to be, but I digress.  If you or your group would like to volunteer, please contact me.  There are many opportunities available.  Thank you all for your help!
