Kitchen Lab: Amuse-bouche

With Open Field Artists-in-Residence Carl and Betsy DiSalvo

Part of Kitchen Lab: A Mobile Hearth for Collectivist Action

Amuse-bouche, or “a mouth amuser,” is a one-bite meal that expresses the creativity of its maker. Make your own Minnesota cuisine experiments, blending flavors and taste profiles. When you find the perfect playful-mouthful, swap your amuse-bouche with others and add to the artist’s ‘Tastes-of-Minnesota’ collection.

Remember, it’s a game, not a meal, so bring your own favorite Summer-in-Minnesota flavor/ingredient to share and mix-and-match with others. What will the DiSalvo’s secret ingredient be? You’ll have to come, share, taste, and play the flavor game to find out.

(This truly is about tastes, shot-glass sized, so if you’re looking for something more substantive, feel free to grab dinner at the D’Amico Garden Grill before or after you amuse your bouche!)


Kitchen Lab is presented in partnership with the University of Minnesota’s Landscape Architecture/College of Design and the Institute for Advanced Studies. The artists’ research for Kitchen lab is supported in part by Intel.
