Each year ArtsMemphis partners with chefs and arts organizations to showcase our city's authentic cultural assets to a large audience through innovative and inspiring events in found spaces, museums and private homes. Our 2013 culinary series engaged thirty-four chefs from four states who formed voluntary teams to support the arts . They mixed food, passion and the gift of their time and talent to develop menus and events with grit and grace―Memphis style.The chefs, artists, arts groups, hosts, venues and stylists created events that gave guests a taste of the creative cultural currency that is all our own. All but a soupçon of this collective commitment was either,gifted, donated or volunteered. From the unpolished to the refined, the blues to ballet, food trucks to fine dining, this series of Installments revels in our city’s one-of-a-kind spirit, serves up over seventy chefs’ recipes, imaginative entertaining tips, approximately 400 photographs and an invaluable resource guide. This 11x 9 coffee table ( and kitchen counter ) hard cover book with dust jacket and smythe sewn binding is a hefty ( approx 5 lb) culinary and cultural treasure celebrating one of of our country's most iconic cities. MEMPHIS; SWEET, SPICY AND A LITTLE GREASY -- Susan Schadt
