Dallas' up-and-coming slow-food genius, Mark Wootton, gains inspiration from the original contemporary art of Cathy Drennan for a night of amazing art, fabulous chef-prepared food, complimentary wine, and great company!

On Saturday, June 9, Mark Wootton will serve our group a beautiful and delicious five-course dinner in The Garden Cafe, which will be filled with Cathy Drennan's art!

As a special favor, Cathy has reduced the cost of her work for this exhibit from its usual gallery prices, so if you see something you can't live without, you might also be able to pick up a bargain!

If you've never been to an evening event at The Garden Cafe, you will be delighted with its transformation to a white-tablecloth, candlelit restaurant in the evening.  With good weather, you'll also be able to join us for a first drink in Mark's beautiful garden!

Equally appealing, you'll be able to meet the chef and hear him explain the inspiration and ingredients in each course, and the artist will also be on hand to explain the deeper meaning behind her work, which is heavily influenced by symbols from childhood travel in Iran, India, and Northern Africa.

As a special gift, your $95 ticket also includes a souvenir menu suitable for framing, which features an image of Cathy's work and a description of Mark's beautiful meal!  Each menu is numbered and signed by both the artist and the chef!

A feast of five courses, free wine, special art and food talks, a wonderful art exhibit, and a piece of art to take home all for $95!

Couples and groups are welcome, but please don't hesitate if you are a single-ticket buyer! There'll be open seating with plenty of friendly foodies to visit with during dinner!

We can't wait to welcome you to this very special night!

Space is limited so please reserve your ticket as soon as possible.

As always, a portion of the proceeds form this Art Saveur event will be contributed to our organization's Scholarship Fund, benefiting needy students in culinary schools and art programs.

Art Saveur events may be recorded for future television productions, documentary films, and advertising purposes.  Your participation in the dinner indicates your full permission for Art Saveur to use your image, name, and/or voice for broadcasts, film, online venues, and advertising.

    This was a great event. The food was amazing, the wine that was paired with each course really did compliment each course nicely. Cathy's art was great.
    It was really great to see how Mark's dishes were inspired by the Cathy's artwork and to have them both there to speak about their creations.
    I'm hooked and will be attending the next event.

    It was an incredible night. Chef Mark created a fabulous meal and as each course came out everyone was amazed at how it topped the previous excellent course. Hearing how Mark used the symbols and meanings from Cathy's stunning artwork as inspiration for each course was also fascinating and made the event more than I could have ever hoped for. Thank you to everyone!!!
