Tom Hunt + The Mindful Kitchen: Earth, Metal, Water, Wood, Fire @ Our/London
Friday 1st September | 7.00pm – 9.30pm
Join us for a five course feast, fermented drink pairing and workshop on mindful eating inspired by the earth’s elements – presented by award-winning chef and food writer Tom Hunt and Heather Thomas from The Mindful Kitchen.
The Mindful Kitchen creates experiences that blend mindfulness and cookery to connect you to nature through food. Taking Tom Hunt’s menu as inspiration, they’ve designed activities to heighten all five of your senses throughout your meal. Expect your food to be served up with a dash of workshop on the side. You will go home with your own homemade vodka infusion, made using some of the aromatic ingredients used during the feast.
Tom has collaborated with a ceramicist from the Dor and Tan Studio in Cornwall to create a bespoke set of plates, vessels and cups to serve the Five Element Feast.
Our/London Vodka will be paired with the meal mixed with Tom’s fermented drinks.
“Food is pleasure, nourishment and a connection to our earth and soil. To explore these connections I wanted to create a meal that nourishes us and our ecology through pleasure. The way we eat and combine food affects how we absorb nutrients and the whole satisfaction of a meal. This tasting menu combines food to gently satiate and satisfy, inspired by the ancient wisdom of Chinese medicine and the earth’s elements”. Tom Hunt
