FEAST Minneapolis: The food


If you're not familiar yet with FEAST (Funding Emerging Artists with Sustainable Tactics), you're missing out. The premise is simple: artists submit proposals, the public pays a suggested donation to attend, and the public then meets the artists and eventually vote to support one of the proposals. It's a fun and interesting experience... and of course, there's food!


Even though this fall has been somewhat balmy, southern-influenced comfort food is always good, and somewhat easy to make en masse. The savory and juicy pulled pork required a return trip to the buffet table for me that evening for seconds (I even considered thirds)

Oven-roasted squash is not often my side-dish of choice, but this was tender and had only the slightest hint of sweetness, making it a winner that I promptly gobbled up.

I'm one of the rare breed of people who loves Brussels sprouts in many forms, and these beauties tossed on a horseradish sauce left just the slightest afterbite of spice.


A southern dinner is never complete without the corny goodness of homemade cornbread.

The bell of the ball was the bourbon bread pudding, which was moist as can be. My only desire was to put a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream on the steamy hot carbfest. Of course, my stomach got the better of me and I neglected to photograph the creamy delight.
