If you count yourself like most food loving New Yorkers who consider themselves aficandos of Food and Art, you’ll want to check out this year’s Umami Festival bustling with lots of fab happenings from films series, food events, and with a special, live addition of The Food Seen on Heritage Network Radio hosted by Michael Harlan Turkell, food writer and photographer. A unique, recently published book and CD project presents recipes by top chefs scored by Brooklyn based, indie rock band, One Ring Zero.  Lead by composer Michael Hearst, the band experimented with a variety of musical styles according to each chef’s vision. The lyrics were contributed by Mario Batali, Tom Collicio, and David Chang, among others.

In the spirit of the project, this event brings together live music, delicious food and drinks, and some personal reflections on both. This final component will be presented by food writer and photographer Michael Harlan Turkell, hosting a special addition of his talk show The Food Seen on Heritage Network Radio from Roulette.

Looking for more interesting foodie venues the Experimental Cuisine Collective takes place on Monday, April 23, from 6 to 8 p.m. at LightHouse Restaurant in Brooklyn: 145 Borinquen Place (corner of Keap). In their presentation, “Elemental: Shaping our Process for Culinary Evolution,” Robert Truitt (executive pastry chef of Altamarea Group) and Brian Sullivan (Ai Fiori) will walk the audience through their creative process by examining design-related theory, cognitive understanding as it pertains to the culinary world, and the influence on the creative process that business occasionally supersedes. Attendees will not only get a visual sense for some of their past works, but also a demonstration incorporating some of the processes and theories that guide their work.
