Sunflowers, Beets, and Sprouts – The Root Café Sunflower Alphabet is in the Works

Last Saturday night, Food Font was at the “Sunflower Affair” dinner at the Root Café in Lakewood, OH.  This event was a 5 course raw/whole food dinner, and people were given a letter to make during the event.

About half of the guests made letters, and the alphabets are really beautiful and show off the unique and tasty food.  Many of the letters had sunflower or pumpkin seeds, beets, and other yummy foods.

All of the food was 98% Locally sourced and the event was done in partnership with the farmers that the Root Café works with including Cleveland Crops, Bay Branch Farm, old Husher farm, Central Roots Farm, and Rittman Fruit Farm.  The event celebrated the harvest of raw and whole foods and recognized this time of the year when summer is ending and fall is starting.

The food was amazing, and there were lots of interesting people at the event. The alphabet is a reflection of the event – inspiring and creative.

The pictures from the event are posted on the Food Font Flickr site., and also can be viewed in the slideshows below.

Food Font is an art project where people can make alphabets out of food, take pictures of each letter, and later use these and other food alphabets to create images and other creative projects.
