 “Art de Table” :

Food and art have been intertwined since the beginning of time. The ability to stimulate all five senses (sight, smell, sound, touch and taste) during one experience is an orchestration of art on multiple levels.

ReCreation, the art consultancy and management company, has teamed up again with Sofitel to stimulate the masses by pairing up twelve Cambodia-based artists and designers to produce two original tablescapes displayed alongside two inspired set menus expertly prepared by Fu Lu Zu’s Head Chef Huang Shui Qiang and Do Forni’s Head Chef Manuelo Pintore.

Join the designers of Khmer Artisan Project, Artisans Associations of Cambodia, Khmer Silk Village, Esprit Libre, and artists Annya Ly, Oum Maknorith, Ly Pisith, Ke Vicheth, Sok Chan, Alain Robotang, Theam, Peap Tarr and Lisa Mam Monday, November 12th at 6:oopm at Le bar in Sofitel’s lobby, to celebrate the opening of “Art de Table.” View the art, taste the food, and indulge your senses.
