The plating will be beyond magnificent; it will be breathtakingly beautiful. Chef Tyler Hutchison is excited to see the artistic foodie renderings plated. “We’ll come up with an idea in our head about what the recipe will look like on a plate. It’ll look like how we dreamed it up, or we may have to make a tweak here or there. It’s something we’ll look at and say, ‘It’s beautiful,’ or we’ll add one thing, and then BOOM! it’ll be perfect. This is what I love about plating,” he says.
Chef Kristin Butterworth smiles at the idea of working with other chefs to collaborate on creativity and concoctions that will surprise, delight, and excite. She says, “Not only do we get to showcase a local and beautiful farm, but we also get to showcase the amazing possibilities of preserved foods and fresh products. Doing these sorts of dinners brings a team together for a night we’ll all remember.”
Chef Hutchison agrees. “This is also a special evening for the front- and back-of-house teams at Aqueous, too. They had a lot of fun with last year’s [sold-out] event, and they’re excited to do it together in a bigger and better way this year.”
