Hugh Mangum, the culinary mastermind behind Mighty Quinn's Barbeque, is bringing his expertise back to Our Town's Art of Food Saturday, February 4th. The unique event challenges over 25 of the best East Side chefs to create a dish based on a piece of fine artwork curated by Sotheby's. Last year, Mangum did his research. He was paired with Hans Hoffman's “Untitled Seascape,” and pulled inspiration not just from the shapes in the painting, but also the artist's childhood home of Germany and adopted home of New York City, which he immigrated to in 1932. The result? A perfectly executed pastrami with spatzle and kraut.

While we wait to see what Hugh is serving up this year, he's sharing one of his favorite recipes with us--Mighty Quinn's Texas Red Chili. To attend this year's Art of Food, happening February 10, visit: www.artofffoodny.com
