Here at Per La Mente, we’re all about spotlighting creators. So we worked with creative culinary experience designer Michael Cirino of A Razor / A Shiny Knife — whom you may recognize from his delightful dalliance with drones — to make a whole new kind of high-tech yet harmonious holiday dinner.
It was a joyful celebratory evening, a convergence of interdisciplinary creators using food as a canvas, leveraging technology, music, and art to interplay with some of the traditional food associated with the season.
From Alejandra Sacasa’s laser-etched rolls and pies to Justin Bolognino’s cocktail overlay app to Jessica Mascitti’s terrific tattooed turkey, the meal was filled with a potluck sense of creativity: talented artists sharing their tricks, their triumphs, and of course their delicious treats. It was a delightful dinner and a warm, wonderful experience that was much more visceral than a simple meal.
Happy holidays from all of us at Per La Mente! May your days be full of creativity, collaboration, and plenty of lasers.
