We have taken diners on ethnobotanical adventures to the cult temples of Ancient Greece, Islamic apothecaries of Persia and the monastic physic gardens of the Middle Ages.
Guests have discovered an abandoned picnic in the woods and explored the ritual and drama of the changing seasons and cultural approaches to life, death and everything in between.
At our recent Dead Poets Society event we played around with edible poems and the relationship between sound and taste. For our foraging pop-up, all ingredients came from within a three mile radius of the venue. Next we plan to look at our culinary history as a species with an Evolutionary Banquet from the Big Bang to modern agriculture and food tech.
Later in the year we are looking to chart the zodiac with edible astrophotography, explore man’s relationship with the tobacco plant, imagine dining in a nuclear winter and make fractal sauces with cymatics.
