In case you couldn’t tell, that’s Sandra Lee, Andrew Cuomo and his daughter laying out in the middle chairs and chef Marcus Samuelsson next to them on the other chair. Hey, the Food Network’s studios are right next to the High Line so it could totally happen!

MATERIALS:

- 5 plastic sushi takeout containers - 12 pairs of wooden chopsticks - black paint - black paper - a fork - foil - glue - a knife - A spatula or spoon - FOOD! You can get pretty creative here and substitute whatever you like but here is what we used:

- mashed potatoes - chinese chives - yams or carrots - stuffing - cranberry paste or quince paste - baby corn - purple corn or whatever corn you have at your local greenmarket - pickled red peppers - soymeat (in an effort to make this recipe vegetarian) - broccoli - dried rosemary - agar agar + blue food coloring (for the water feature) - mexican corncakes or cornbread - enoki mushrooms (for the “people”) - wasabi flavored sesame seeds - black sesame seeds
