Chef’s Table Series at Nourish Cafe: Savory Pairings with Single Malt Scotch

The Indianapolis Museum of Art offers a plethora of interesting art exhibits that can affect all of your senses. For instance, one piece in the new Tara Donovan exhibit of large scale installations is made entirely of tar paper. The massive structure fills an entire gallery room with its ominous black jagged cut edges. But what is most impressive about the piece is a viewers ability to interact with it through their nose alone. Like the enormous physical structure that fills the room, so to does the smell of tar (a familiar scent to anyone who has ever had their roof repaired). Closing your eyes reveals an entirely new way of interacting with art through a different sense altogether. This is what the Nourish Cafe Chef’s Table Series aims to do each month. The Indianapolis Museum of Art offers food and drink pairings as a kind of art this Thursday, April 15, 2010 at the Nourish Cafe’s Chef’s Table Series.

Join the IMA for a themed cocktail reception in the Nourish Cafe, where food and wine stations filled to the brim with tapas and interesting drink pairings will teach your taste buds how to appreciate food art. On Thursday, April 15, 2010 the staff of the Nourish Cafe turn their attention to Savory Pairings single malt scotch. Tickets to the event are $35.00 per person, or $120.00 for a series of four people. This Indianapolis event gets underway at 6:30 pm in the Nourish Cafe on the first level of the IMA.

I know what you’re thinking. Single Malt Scotch? With food? Gross! Yes, it’s true. Single malt scotch is a treat usually enjoyed before or after a fine meal is had, not during. In fact, the most popularly paired item with this divine nectar–a cigar. People often think of scotch as too strong in flavor and in alcohol content to pair well with any food. Even in its country of origin, Scotland, its is not customary to drink a dram of scotch with dinner. But the fine chefs at the Nourish Cafe aim to prove otherwise, making Scotch lovers triumphant at this month’s Chefs Table Series.

Don’t miss this yummy Indianapolis art event at the IMA’s Nourish Cafe Thursday, April 15 at 6:30 pm. After your belly is full of eatable art and single malt scotch, take a docent guided or self guided tour through the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s Indianapolis art galleries. Be sure to check out the new Contemporary Couture exhibit, Body Unbound, in the Fashion and Textile Arts Gallery and the Tara Donovan installations.
