The Food Artisan Program at Taliesin: Cultivating Taste of Place

Taliesin Preservation announces a new and innovative work-study culinary program located on the working agricultural estate of architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s legacy buildings near Spring Green, Wisconsin. The program, launching in April, is designed by farm-to-table pioneer and founder of L’Etoile, Odessa Piper, with input from many colleagues, and overseen by Chef Barbara Wright and the Taliesin community.

This work-study culinary program is founded on the principle that respect for nature and all that grows is the beginning of understanding good food. It is inspired in part by Wright’s architectural apprenticeship program and his commitment to creating environments that harmonize architecture, art, culture, and the land — a philosophy Wright called “organic architecture.” The campus is the Riverview Terrace Café, located on the banks of the Wisconsin River, a restaurant Wright designed alongside the Taliesin organic farm in the heart of Wisconsin’s Driftless Area — a picturesque region known for its concentration of organic farms, world-class food and beverage artisans, pristine landscapes and artistic sense of place. The restaurant is part of the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center, which welcomes more than 25,000 visitors to Taliesin from April to November.
