Here's a beautiful video from the New Yorker, shot at a very special dinner in California featuring three acclaimed chefs, David Kinch, Daniel Patterson and Corey Lee, and some very interesting eating implements.
The dinner took place late last year, as part of the Experimental Gastronomy project by the Dutch Steinbeisser collective – a project we've written about before. The idea is to bring chefs and artists together to ceate a truly unique experience that forces everyone, including diners, out of their comfort zones: chefs must create an entirely vegan menu using locally sourced, biodynamic or organic produce, which is then consumed using the artists' unconventional eating tools. From there it's hoped new ideas and conversations will flourish.
As you can see from the video, the food looks delicious, and is served in some very interesting ways, including what looks like from a four way spoon.
The next Experimental Gastronomy event will be in Amsterdam in October, but you may be interested to know that you can purchase many of the pieces used for the dinners from the online store.
Take a look at the video below and see how the event unfolded. We suspect there were probably a few spillages and pinging vegetables, as people got to grips with their new eating tools.
