We hear about the concept of food as art often but how are these two worlds really intertwined? Professor and "Performance Architect" Dorita Hannah explains how the table has conceptually evolved into a place of performance on an artistically themed episode of Taste Matters with Mitchell Davis. Learn how food has become a form of entertainment in its own right and what this means for both those making food and those consuming it. Hear how decor, space, staging and technology all help shape how we experience culinary performances in the 21st century. This episode was sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.


"The table is a stage we sit at.... food becomes the medium that you exchange across the table but many other things are being exchanged at the same time."

"Food in itself has become a new form of entertainment."
