Foraging Dinner07 / 29 July 2021
Everything we do is born from the land, and everything leaves a trace upon it. Especially the food that we eat.
Set within the exhibition, greenhouse and gardens, we invite you to embark on a culinary collaboration between Jo March - Omved’s resident creative chef - and curators/experimental artists Kirsty Badenoch and Sayan Skandarajah. Together, we will take our tastebuds for a stroll around the produce grown, harvested and fermented in the magical gardens of Omved. A vegetarian/vegan menu will be picked, strung and served from the seasonal offerings of the garden, and installed throughout the spaces.
Savouring flavours, smells and pigments from the plants, fruits and roots that grow around us, the traces from our plates, pickings and conversations will add to the ongoing drawing project that evolves and is displayed throughout the exhibition. Anticipate unexpected chances to get up close and smell, taste and touch the nature that surrounds us.
'Food is a beautiful weapon to support nature conservation. It is a creative tool I nurture and constantly evolve with, from the seed in the soil to the produce in your gut - mindful, sustainable and holistic food for all is my motto' - Jo March
A unique chance to view the exhibition and RIBA award-winning greenhouse in private, the chef and artists will be present all evening to talk about their methods and processes. Proceeds from the Feasts will go towards the funding of the exhibition and community workshops.
We will be holding two dinners throughout the festival:
Wednesday 7 July, 7pm
Thursday 29 July , 7pm
