We Eat Color

All colors have a taste and almost magical association in our taste memory. Art also contains a symphony of flavors, and it is precisely through its colors that it becomes edible.

"We Eat Color: México que a todo sabes" by Martha Ortiz

We Eat Color is a project of communion, synergy and synesthesia. Notable and talented artists reveal their association with dishes in the perfect loving act of color, and together evoke what they have in common: Seduction and seduced wisdom, in a virtuous circle of light and shadows, radiance and opacity.
 

Mexico is a country with a strong gastronomic identity and a long history of flavors and traditions, of tables with dishes that collect stories and narratives, fantasy and eccentricities.

Just think about the complexity of the mole and its deep red color that, like the vital fluid, runs through the veins of the exalted flavors of our country. like the brushstrokes of an artist that contain that perfect color to turn it into a succulent and exhilarating work of art.

We Eat Color  is a visual nod to flavors and colors, art and cooking, brushes and spoons, canvas and surfaces of the plates, to the installation of objects and arrangement of food, to the here and now and the consciousness, to the seduced and the seducers, to the eye and the tongue, to the perfect highpoint, to ecstasy and to pause.

And from this constant flicker of edible and artistic ingredients, we can only say: 


Enjoy your meal!
