Cuisine-Art gives the perfect opportunity for the curious to roll up their sleeves and enjoy a sample workshop from our resident artists as well as experience a food or drink sample from the nutritional & healthy, to the indulgent naughty but nice while wandering through art studios. Then hang on to your apron during the hourly live cook-offs where chefs are given a black box of secret ingredients and compete against the clock. There is even a chance to get those burning culinary questions answered at the many cooking demo’s offered.
