On Friday, December 15, 2023 from 6.30pm to 9.30pm, residency dinner by Giga Dinette, a duo of artists Clara Valdes & Jane Bidet, graduates of the Haute École des Arts du Rhin (HEAR). 

For Giga Dinette, the Sundgau region became the starting point for experiments and reflections around the apple, a fruit that concentrates childhood memories, myths and stories in its core. During this residency, the artists gathered plants and gleaned various materials, which they later transformed into dishes, utensils, sculptures or coins. These harvests were punctuated by meetings with local artisans and farmers. 

The collection of fruits, materials and artisanal and culinary know-how will come to life at a banquet prepared by Mélissa Dima, an invited gourmet chef, and accompanied by René-Sens Alsace cider. The food will be served in «dishes» created by the artists in collaboration with Thomas Roger, ceramist. Guests will be invited to tell an apple story in exchange for a meal. Fed by these new stories, Giga Dinette offers a time for tasting and sharing. 

By reservation only: Sarah Menu, Head of Education of CRAC Alsace at s.menu@cracalsace.com.
