Brexit Banquet

Brexit Banquet

Online Eat-A-Long with Center for Genomic Gastronomy

Join the Center for Genomic Gastronomy on Thursday 21 January from 20.00 (19:00 for our friends in the UK) on Zoom for a 1-hour live meal and conversation, exploring recipes from a post-Brexit food system. 

Guests to the Brexit Banquet are invited to cook and eat one of the five recipes published online Brexit Banquet website, concoct their own recipe, or simply show up with a PDO wine or cheese from their non-UK home country. Eat along with us while home cooks share their dishes and experts tell us about taste, place and a changing British food system. 

This will be the first live event for Brexit Banquet: a set of recipes and transition scenarios for pre-enacting a disrupted food system. The event is part of the installation ‘O.F.F.I.C.E.’, which is currently on show at MU during Evolutionaries.

When: Thursday 21 January | Time: 20.00 (19.00 UK time) | Place: via Zoom | Entrance: free
