Experimental Food Society Spectacular 2011

A culinary arts event, The Experimental Food Society Spectacular 2011 comprises of three parts, an exhibition, followed by a wild themed banquet and talk.

A must-see for any food lover the ticketed daytime exhibition, held at the Truman Brewery on Friday 21 October (1.00pm -6.00pm) and Saturday 22 October (11.00am -6.00pm), is a spectacular and all-new display by Britain’s most talented and pioneering gourmet artists; an awe inspiring assemblage of butter sculptors, sonic food artists, food magicians, cake artists, food futurologists, conceptual food artists and food model-makers to name a few.  Consultants to Michelin starred chefs and global food organizations as well as exhibitors at some of the world’s top art houses, they will challenge your perception of food and show you that there is more to life than just swallowing.

Featuring installations, demonstrations, samplings and talks, the Experimental Food Society Spectacular offers an opportunity to meet these pioneering foodies first hand, marvel at their creations, take part in one of the interactive exhibits, sample edible art, watch some of the artists as they create their works on site, listen to a talk, purchase books and foodie items, participate in a menu devising game show and pick up tips on how to get experimental in the kitchen.
