I’ve always left Artifacts events thoroughly entertained, inspired, and delighted, and the quarterly event series–which explores ideas with a range of experts–returns tomorrow night from 7 to 10:30 at 501 Union with their first food-themed production. The night is part educational and part experiential, opening with an hour of quick visual presentations from food and drinks professionals and closing with an hour of demonstrations. Chef Eric Bolyard will prepare four root vegetables one of four ways on demand, and Brian Quinn will be leading a Wine Sensory Experience as a means to discover personal taste through olfactory experiments, such as smelling herbs and other fragrant ingredients to help you talk about wine. The lineup also includes Kitchensurfing CEO Jon Tien, Michael Cirino of A Razor, A Shiny Knife, author of the upcoming cookbook The Food of Taiwan, Cathy Erway, and Pratt’s Food Design Studio founder Emilie Baltz.  Tickets include one hour of beer and wine, plus food by Rucola.
