The Art of Dessert
Now in its 15th year, The Art of Dessert is an evening of fine dining, featuring one-of-a-kind confections created by famed North Bay pastry artists. Desserts will be judged by a panel of local celebrities, and will double as artistic table centerpieces and the delectable final course.
A new element at the event this year are celebrity-hosted tables, where guests will experience the evening with engaging and dynamic celebrities who also share enthusiasm for the arts. The Celebrity Hosts include Food Network star and local restauranteur Duskie Estes, Top Chef Master Douglas Keane, master chef and hospitality entrepreneur Charlie Palmer, “Chez Panisse Desserts” author and James Beard Award-winning pastry chef Lindsey Shere, popular Sonoma County executive chef and James Beard Award finalist Mark Stark of Stark Reality Restaurants, and acclaimed travel and food writer Matt Villano.
Single tickets for the event are $250, with table purchases available for $1,875. Celebrity hosted tables are $6,000, or $750 for a single ticket. For more information please email [email protected].
The Art of Dessert raises vital funds for the Luther Burbank Memorial Foundation, which allows the Center to engage Sonoma County residents in the power of the arts, from world class performances to nationally-recognized education programs that change the lives of 40,000 children annually. Since its inception, The Art of Dessert has raised $3.2 million and helped the Center provide the enrichment of arts to over 400,000 children.
