FEAL 2018 and Main & Station Nonesuch

FEAL 2018 and Main & Station Nonesuch
A Dancing River Sprite Frolicking Feast
on 22 December, 2018 beginning at 7pm
in the Nonesuch Café

The creation of chef George Smith and Cora-Lee Eisses-Smith, the Dancing River Sprite Frolicking Feasts are six-course literary feasts that occur on mostly the last weekend of every month in Middle River, Cape Breton.

Occasionally George and Cora-Lee also hit the road for pop-up appearances and we are delighted that the pair will be offering a feast in Parrsboro for the first time this December as part of FEAL, the festival of erotic arts & literature.
Chef George will prepare a six-course menu based on what is locally available as well as food references found in a work of literature chosen by his wife, Cora-Lee, who will perform costumed readings from the book with each course.
Described by The Guardian as “a deep sensual plunge, a worship of the body, inside and out“, the work Cora-Lee has selected for us is Jeanette Winterson’s fourth novel Written On The Body. Published in 1992, the New York Times Book Review described it as “an ambitious work, at once a love story and a philosophical meditation on the body… a work that is consistently revelatory about the phenomenon of love“.
Chef George will also talk about how he prepared the food, where he sourced the ingredients, and many other tangents of curiosity and nonsense.

Remuneration of your own discretion, and if you wish to drink wine with your meal, please feel free to bring your own.

Space is limited and reservations are required. To RSVP and if you have any questions please reply to fun@hmsnonesuch.com .

The festival of erotic arts & literature, FEAL, will begin 21 December with the opening of a visual arts exhibition in the secondfloor gallery.

FEAL 2018 runs until 2 January, 2019 so watch for the detailed schedule which will be posted in early December.

A variety of creative disciplines will be represented over the course of the 2 week festival and yes, there is still time to participate…
