Feeding the Senses in Lockdown London

The Futurist Cookbook, a wonderfully provocative manifesto to creativity, disguised as a cookbook, became a prompt for new kind of... Continue Reading →

Food and embodiment – day 2

Tereza, Nuala and I spent the afternoon using unusual instruments to peel and dissect food.
