Of This Earth - A culinary experience like no other, presented by Bunjil Place and Carbon Arts
The Australian Future Foods Lab invites guests on a dizzying and delicious journey through deep geological time to the present, in the hope of inspiring a revolution in food culture. Collaborating with Scale Free Network, Sensory Empire and Future Crunch’s Musical Philosopher, guests can discover distinctively Australian tastes and tales, and enter into the complex and evolving story of this land.
Inspired by Bruce Pascoe’s book Dark Emu, the evening will feature a soil biome immersion, an edible introduction to artist Vera Moller’s exhibition A Thousand Tides, and a conceptual culinary collaboration with Alexander Perry (former chef and restaurateur of The Good Table). On the menu are infusions, fermentations, and paired animals and plants that illustrate the complex web of relationships that sustain us on this earth. The only menu hint for now is Smoked Yabbie and Mussel, Finger Lime and Pig Face!
The Australian Future Foods Lab is an artist-researcher collective led by Carbon Arts, re-igniting taste buds and the cultural imagination in support of emerging and resilient food systems. Working in collaboration with Situation Dining, the Australian Future Foods Lab are set to deepen the exploration of native flavours and sustainable agriculture in 2019 through a profound, immersive dining experience that raises questions about our relationship to place.
