Feast your eyes while you indulge your taste buds during a month-long celebration of the visual and kitchen arts at Art Culinaire at Conrad Bali's Resort & Spa's premier restaurant - Spice.
Spice. - one of the island's leading dining venues will play host to a celebration of the finer things of life via an innovative meeting between Food and Art. One of Bali's leading resident artists, Isabel Schiffmacker, has joined efforts with the Resort's head culinary artisan, Executive Chef Gary Rosen, to create an experience designed to both enrich and satiate the senses.
The unique experience begins with champagne and canapés, served in the Resort's Lobby Lounge while enjoying a painting exhibition by internationally-renowned artist Isabel Schiffmacker. Her paintings, like her life, reflect Schiffmacker's unique personal odyssey - a universe created during an intriguing personal journey traversing the worlds of the cinema to her current destination – acyrlic paints on canvas.
Inspired by the richness of the artist's vision, each evening's participants will adjourn to Spicefor a special menu inspired by Isabel's artistic vision and prepared by Chef Gary Rosen. Chef Rosen is adamant that a true chef is more artisan than artist; a master craftsman creating beautiful items of beauty and use to our everyday existence. By combining forces with an artist of Schiffmacker’s caliber, Chef Rosen aspires to transcend the transitory beauty of a meticulously prepared dinner by adding the ingredient of art. The result: an evening that nourishes both the body and the soul.
As a special memento of the evening, diners will bring home a souvenir menu, personally autographed by the Artist.
