Keith Cohen, the culinary mastermind behind Orwashers, is bringing his personal touch back to the Art of Food again this year, where he and 30 other top chefs will each be serving up a unique dish based on a piece of artwork. His pairing last year was incredible--both in terms of taste and relation to the artwork. He was assigned Karen Kilimnik's oil painting “Rich and Poor, Skid Row, the Messenger Boy by Childe Hassam.” As Art of Food ticketholders examined the artwork, they also got to taste Cohen's unique rendering of the piece: a sourdough bagel (representing the poor) with cream cheese (rich in flavor) and lox (rich in price). He then added additional garnishes to the dish to pull more color from the painting.

We still have a few weeks until this year's Art of Food on February 10. To see and taste the masterpieces, visit www.artoffoodny.com to purchase tickets.

To hold us over until then, Keith is sharing the recipe for one of Orwashers most popular sandwiches.

Orwashers Turkey Sandwich:

1. Start with an Orwashers Baguette
2. Cut the baguette open and schmear the inside with dill mayo
3. Add 6 slices of freshly cut organic turkey breast
4. Top with 3 slices of white cheddar cheese, 4 slices of cucumber, one quarter of an avocado and a small handful of alfalfa sprouts
