#ArtWeekAtHome – Day 9: Culinary Arts

May 9, 2020

For each day of #ArtWeekAtHome, we are focusing on one popular genre of arts/culture. We’re kicking off our final weekend celebrating the culinary arts. So channel your inner Julia Child, preheat the oven, and get ready to cook up some fun today! Or for those Zoom happy hours, get creative and invent a ‘craft’ cocktail while you mix it up with your favorite shaker!

2019 Art of Food - The Smiley (Donuts & Droughts, Worcester)


Today’s challenge is inspired by ArtWeek’s Special Program, The Art of Food. Since 2015, each ArtWeek season local eateries have featured a special ArtWeek menu item inspired by a piece of art, a favorite album, artist or an arts group. Need some inspiration yourself? Take a look at what was offered last ArtWeek season. Or have you been eyeing that now-famous Dalgona coffee? Why not try an alternative today? While Disney parks are closed, they’re releasing some of their coveted recipes like Beauty and the Beast’s delicious grey stuff. Now’s the time to challenge your culinary skills!

So getting cookin’ – nothing is off the table! Before you take a bite (or sip) remember to take a photo and share it by tagging us @ArtWeekMA and #ArtWeekAtHome #ArtWeekDay9


Literature, music, history, and theater have all provided inspiration in the culinary arts – after all, you eat with your eyes first. Thanks to former ArtWeek event hosts and partners, there are tons of tasty options out there. Check out these offerings:
