While the city doesn’t want for food-meets-art parties, an upcoming collaborative effort at Eigensinn Farm scheduled for later this summer looks like it will eclipse them all: renowned French landscape artist Jean Paul Ganem and pioneering back-to-the-land chef Michael Stadtländer will be working together to stimulate both mind and palate with The Singhampton Project. Presented by Earth Day Canada and running from August 10-26, the endeavor will involve a seven-course tasting menu that roams over seven garden installations set up in the fields and forests of Stadtländer’s 100-acre farm. Each garden will be equipped with its own kitchen and dining area—the latter often part of the living installation—and will be paired with a complementary dish, using vegetables grown as part of a garden sculpture. Two gardeners and 17 apprentice chefs will be involved. Last week, we took a tour of the project-in-development up on Eigensinn Farm. Check it out in our slideshow »
