TASTE Welcomes Ancestral Modern

The TASTE Team is excited to welcome SAM’s newest exhibit, Ancestral Modern: Australian Aboriginal Art from the Kaplan & Levi Collection, on view May 31 – September 2, 2012. With more than 100 works created from 1970 through 2009, the exhibition showcases what has been called the artistic renaissance of the world’s oldest living culture.

Inspired by the ‘local and forage’ mentality, the TASTE culinary team has created a unique menu that emulates traditional food preparations similar to the Indigenous Australians.

Limited to the use of natural sweetener such as honey and agave nectar, Pastry Chef Will enjoyed the unique challenge and created sweet treats such as Peach Nectar Cake Bites and Agave Brownie Bites.

Excited to incorporate his own passions with the new menu items,  Catering Executive Chef Paul applied his knowledge of the Northwest foraging culture to create tasty bites that include fiddlehead ferns and wild berries.  

At the TASTE Bar, sample our new exhibit inspired cocktail, the Honey Roo, created by Beverage Coordinator Inga Walker,  which blends local distillery’s Wishkah River Honey Vodka with Lillet Blanc and our own house smoked honey.
