HOSTING THE WORLD
London is the crossroads to the world – Europe’s most populated economic powerhouse, connecting to more countries than any other, its Greenwich clock meting out World Time. In the summer of 2012, the whole world will arrive here – online, on TV, and on our doorsteps – to discover that London itself is already a world within a world – a nation of nations and pageant of people; a fusion of diverse languages, cultures, and food.
Global Feast greets 5.5 million visitors from the global world with the faces and personalities, cultures and cuisines of London’s glorious melting pot. The event mirrors the rich multiplicity of this city’s population and its extensive home-restaurant food scene – the semi-secret ritual of local Londoners opening up their homes to host the city. We celebrate inclusivity, diversity and collectivity, welcoming and showcasing one and all.
The food for the overall event will be curated and co-hosted by the queen of the supperclub scene, Kerstin Rodgers – a.k.a MsMarmiteLover – chef extraordinaire, creator of The Underground Restaurant (one of London’s first and most recognised supperclubs), and author of the definitive book Supper Club. She will compile an extraordinary journey through world food, inviting specialist contributions from expert guest chefs – serving the best from London talent and world cuisine.
The event is conceived by Latitudinal Cuisine
, a collective culinary project bringing people together to create and enjoy great global food and local conversation. The central immersive landscape installation is designed by atmos – the art/architecture company also founded by Alex Haw.
THE EVENING’S EXPERIENCE
Each evening offers a unique moment in an epic eastwards culinary journey through the world, beginning and ending in London. The culinary destination for each evening shifts an average distance of 18 degrees each day (the world’s 360 degrees divided by twenty – a distance roughly the length of Turkey). The master chef for the journey will be Kerstin Rodgers from The Underground Restaurant, who will invite expert guest chefs from the best of London supperclubs to contribute courses from the countries of each evening.
The event will be held in a secret London location (its identity soon revealed) within easy reach of the Olympic site. Only 70 seats are available for each of the 20 unique nights coinciding with the duration of London’s 2012 Olympics. Guests can pre-book their initial seating position at their preferred city – the port of embarkation from which they will commence their journey of the evening.
The bar opens at 7pm when guests are welcomed with a complimentary cocktail and encouraged to wander through Worldscape, and mingle with the world. Waiters drift through the travellers with a sea of mouth-watering canapés crafted for the geography of the evening. At 8pm, guests find their seats – each uniquely carved and set with a bespoke set of plates and mapkins that illustrate their location in the world – as the chef introduces the meal.
The flow of courses is punctuated by entertainment intermezzi – an amuse–tête interlude – freeing guests to travel to a new seat at Worldscape. Guests are free to stay after dessert to mingle and drink at the bar (open til 2am each night), connecting and constructing their own new social landscapes.
