Heads up foodies, interactive food art lovers and culinary culture vultures; looks like this is one for you (us too!). The wonderfully creative and fascinating peeps at Experimental Food Society have a two-day exhibition at the Truman Brewery coming up this November… and we can’t wait, it wreaks of amazing!


This is the fourth year that this dynamic society have put on what they call their ‘culinary arts event’, we can’t believe that we haven’t been to any pervious happenings from these foodalicious freaks (freaks – in the best possible way) but we are sure set to remedy this quick sharp – as we intend to be first in the line this year!

What to expect at The Truman: Talks from some of London’s most beloved specialists, including:  Jelly Mongers aka Bompas & Parr and food futurologist Dr Morgaine Gaye along with other delights such as a breathable tearoom, a wild flower meadow made entirely from sugar, a camera made from edible materials that when cooked form a meal and  even bitters infused with moisture scientifically extracted from the walls of the Churchill War Rooms. Indeed! These delights are just some of the remarkable occurrences due to be served up during this exhibition.

This is set to be a sensational event showcasing Britain’s most talented and pioneering gourmet artists.

EXPERIMENTAL FOOD SOCIETY SPECTACULAR 2013 is a ticketed event, so to experience what promises to be some insanely exciting visuals, captivating activities and displays (including the themed banquets: ‘Food & Fragrance’ planned at the Cookbook Cafe), get your tickets quick….
