Root Division is presenting ~TASTE 2010: A GARDEN OF EARTHLY DELIGHTS~ on Thursday April 22nd. It’s a night of inspired food, drink, art, and music, all on-site in Root Division’s gallery and studios. There will be over 12 local chefs and mixologists (including Bar Bambino, Beretta, Bourbon & Branch), 26 visual artists, and live music by Eggplant Casino. Since this year’s event coincides with the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, the theme—A Garden of Earthly Delights—is all about partaking in spring’s abundance.
There will also be a silent auction of gift certificates from Bay Area restaurants, spas, salons, and other venues, and small artworks by local emerging artists. Guests will also have the opportunity to win the raffled Wine Chest, a collection of over 50 bottles of one-of-a-kind artist-decorated and collector’s choice wines (raffle tickets are $40 each or $75 for two tickets).
A limited number of VIP tickets will be available, offering a private and advanced opportunity to experience TASTE 2010 at its fullest. In addition to early access to appetizers, artwork, and specialty cocktails, each VIP ticket includes a special cooking demonstration and tasting by a featured chef at 6:30pm, a vegetable-carving demo by Food Network Gold Medalist chef Ray Duey, and a limited edition screen-printed bag filled with goodies and gifts from various venues around town. Proceeds benefit Root Division’s free after-school art classes for Bay Area youth as well as local emerging artists.
