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 Dead Poets Society event we played around with edible poems and the relationship between sound and taste. We will be exploring this further in November when we will be working with prescriptive poet William Seighart for the launch of his anthology Poetry Pharmacy.
For our foraging pop-ups, all ingredients came from within a Three mile radius of the venue. For our seasonal Urban Foraged Feast we stick to East London. In Dartmoor we investigated 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, imagining dining in a nuclear winter and celebrate the Roman festival of Saturnalia.
