Season 5 - Episode 524

click for larger image On a special edition of Art Rocks!, we celebrate The Art of Food (episode #524). Three artists of national repute, Billy Solitario of New Orleans; Demond Matsuo of Baton Rouge; and Mia Kaplan of Lacombe, inspire The Art of Food Dinner menu creatively prepared by Chef Michael Gulotta of New Orleans.

Billy Solitario has a passion for painting the landscapes he grew up around on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, as well as the creatures that inhabit that environment: crustaceans, crabs, crawfish and oysters. Mia Kaplan turns metal into magical floral designs in addition to painting and drawing phenomenal illustrations of the plants along Bayou Lacombe. Demond Matsuo is inspired by the artistry of Asian Geishas robed in elaborate fabrics. Influenced by mythology, he is also known for his astounding depictions of adorned stags.

Chef Michael Gulotta, of MoPho and Maypop in New Orleans, blends his love of Southeast Asian and South Louisiana cuisine and adds a dash of art to create the perfect menu for a truly unique dining experience, The Art of Food on Art Rocks!
