The Colour Palate
A pop-up dining experience where the food, drink, room, music, table, cutlery and mood change colour with each course!
Green, red, yellow, white, black: every colour can spark off a range of different emotions. Colours can be soothing or stimulating, uplifting or sinister. But how often do we really focus on colour and experience the full intensity of its impact? For its next exciting pop-up event, The Art of Dining will stimulate your different senses – taste, vision, hearing, touch and smell – in an exploration of colour. The dining room, your plate and your glass will be flooded with different colours as each course arrives and the music changes. Expect to be stimulated, amused and delighted by the setting for your meal, and to savour an eclectic mix of punchy tastes and delicious flavours.
The gauntlet has been thrown for chef Ellen Parr, who formily trained at Moro. Choosing ingredients firstly for colour is not her usual starting point …. but a challenge she is rising to!
Set designer Alice Hodge is using lighting, paper, glass and fabric to create an ever changing environment. Diners interact with courses to create thier own rainbow throughout the evening.
