Food=Art // Chef Chad Wells // Joe Squared // Campfire

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph a Food=Art dinner.  This time the affair was held at the new Joe Squared in Power Plant.  This go around the chef was Chad Wells of Ale Wife and his sous chef John Jacobs.  Together they worked out a menu of what I would call elevated campfire food. Succulent hickory smoked trout, roasted beets, mac and cheese with duck, venison stew and a lovely quail dish.  Finally, for dessert s’more’s with candied bacon!  Yummm!!  And finally to tie the whole night together we were pleased to enjoy the bluegrass stylings of The Manly Deeds.   Enjoy the photos of the evening!


A few months ago I was invited to photograph the Food=Art event at The Patterson, Creative Alliance.  Food=art is a monthly dinner series that supports and celebrates Baltimore’s culinary artists.  Those who know me will tell you that this is right up my alley.  I have a soft spot for cooking and eating all sorts of food.  So when I got the call from my good friend David Bersch (recently on Master Chef, himself) that he and Joe from JoeSquared were teaming up to do one of these events, I jumped right on board.  Their menu would revolve around the humble bean thus arriving at the Food=farts title for the evening.  My job; to photograph behind the scenes in the kitchen.  My perk; free food and drinks!  Win all around.  I throughly enjoyed this insiders view into the kitchen, filled with good food, great laughs and good friends.  To read more about upcoming Food=art events check out their blog by clicking their name!
