The very lively second event of the Jackson Hole Film & Food Series took place at the Center for the Arts on Thursday, May 24. This culinary event featured artisan cocktails, passed hors dʼoeuvres and a gourmet dessert buffet.

Guests enjoyed many scrumptious hors dʼoeuvres, including seared ahi and Niçoise atop fingerling potatoes, elk tartare on fresh made potato chips and the wood-fired pizza… compliments of Roger Friedman, executive chef/partner of Rendezvous Bistro, and Karen Hogan, owner/chef of Firebelly Pizza.

A fabulous chocolate sculpture adorned the table of dessert tarts and cakes provided by Oscar Ortega, master chocolatier and pastry chef of the Atelier Ortega. The chocolate cups filled with fresh fruits glazed with a wonderful, mysterious liqueur were my favorite!

The featured film of the evening was “The Architect and the Painter”, a fascinating documentary about Charles Eames and his wife Ray Eames. The Eames were two of the most prominent designers… architect and painter, respectively… of the 20th Century.
