Sophie Lee: Original Recipe Meal
Wednesday, 4 September 2013 from 19:00 to 22:00 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Original Recipe Meal is a collaboration between artist Sophie Lee and Frank’s Café Head Chef Michael Davies and is part of a series of dinners devised by artists for the Bold Tendencies Artist Dining Space.
A bone soup is found in China, 3000 years old. The excavation of a Roman tomb disgorges an untouched bottle of wine. In a river near Oxford, amidst neolithic weapons and tools, the first chunks of barley bread bob and float. Put down your spoons, throw out your Wholefoods; it's time to eat something really nourishing. Join us for a menu made up of the first foods, the bare bones; ancient building blocks – basic and defined.
SET MENU £25
Burnt British Bread
Blackened whey bread with curds and pickles
Kamut, crab, preserved egg and cabbage
+ Take Away
