If you have an appetite for the weird and wonderful then head to Brick Lane (today and tomorrow) where culinary trailblazers the Experimental Food Society are staging one of their annual edible exhibitions.
The Experimental Food Society Spectacular at the Old Truman Brewery will showcase food sculptures and paintings by some of the most ingenious gourmet artists in town. The Experimental Food Society is a maverick munch bunch that includes consultants to Michelin starred chefs, exhibitors at the Tate and V&A, and wacky jellymongers Bompas & Parr.
Visitors can get stuck into the interactive exhibits, taste some of the works, watch live demos and pick up tips on getting craftier in the kitchen. This promises to be a mind-blowing, tongue-tingling experience that will forever change your perception of food.
The Experimental Food Society Spectacular is at The Truman Brewery, Dray Walk Gallery, Shop 14 and F Block B4 on 91 Brick Lane, London E1 6QL (Whitechapel tube). The exhibition runs from 1pm-6pm (Fri) and 11am-6pm (Sat). Tickets are £5 and can be bought on the door on Friday or online for Saturday’s show.
