David Bowie Art Dinner – Just Dance…and Eat

   FullSizeRender 4

Arguably one of the most original voices and figures ever to grace the stage of rock ‘n roll, is the fearless master of reinvention, Mr. David Bowie. His legacy of artistic expression and his collection of work has, and continues to influence multiple generations of fans and admirers. Who doesn’t love an unpredictable rebel who is shrouded by mystery and flamboyant fashion? His dramatic flair for life lives on in many genres of art, even the culinary arts.

 I recently attended an art dinner hosted by Kona, Hawaii’s infamous rebel chef, Scott Hamilton and his artistic muse, Kira Kamamalu. The seven-course meal was infused with Bowie’s sexually adventurous spirit, spaced out fantasies and charming misfit personality.

 One course morphed into another, just like Bowie’s unusual, yet recognizable personalities. Chef Hamilton captured the essence of Bowie’s ability to thrust his eccentric tastes upon us mainstream folk and make them not only palatable, but enjoyable. Here is a taste of some of the complex flavors of the evening that were intentionally created and named to entice participants to explore their own edgy human impulses.
