A foodie spectacular hits London

A foodie spectacular hits London

Your mother probably told you not to play with your food, but this weekend ‘mother knows best’ is thrown out the window as the most inventive foodies come to London for the Experimental Food Society Spectacular.

From chocolate painters to bread sculptors, food landscapers and jelly mongers, The Brickhouse in London’s East End will showcase your favourite foods as you’ve never seen them before. These culinary creatives include chocolate painter Sid Chidiac who will be exhibiting a giant chocolate painting of the queen; food magician John Van der Put will be turning water into wine and famous jelly mongers Bompas and Parr will be pushing gastronomic boundaries, as always, with an exhibition called ‘Kill it, Eat it’.

But, unlike most exhibitions, it’s not all look and don’t touch – at the end of the day there will be a unique opportunity to feast on the artwork in the banquet finale to the event. Head chef at The Brickhouse Matthew Reuter will serve up some of the installations in a surreal five-course feast for all the senses, accompanied by a series of food-related performance and a food themed DJ set by the Broken Hearts. Go on, tuck in.

The Experimental Food Society Spectacular, Saturday 25 September, The Brickhouse, Brick Lane, London E1 6RU. Daytime Exhibition 11am-5pm, tickets ?5; Evening Banquet 7.30pm-1am, tickets ?75. www.experimentalfoodsociety.com
