Experience the Experimental Food Society Spectacular

| No TrackBacks

MelonMan200.jpgIf your idea of culinary arts is more Dali than Delia then you need to get yourself along to the Experimental Food Society Spectacular at The Brickhouse in London's Shoreditch on Saturday 25 September.

It's the annual showcase event for the Experimental Food Society whose members include architectural jellymongers Bompas & Parr and chocolate sculptor Paul Wayne Gregory.

There's an exhibition from 11am-5pm, then a banquet finale from 7.30pm -1.00am at which diners will have a multi sensory dining experience courtesy of a five-course menu designed by Brickhouse head chef Matthew Reuter and Experimental Food Society members, accompanied by a series of food related performances.

Entrance to the exhibition is £5.00 and tickets for the banquet cost £75.00 from the Experimental Food Society

 

Now you see Liftbed, now you don't

Liftbed200.jpgJust imagine the fun you could have with this.

Sending a sleeping partner ceiling-wards for a laugh and filming yourself 'levitating' on the bed to scare your friends are the two that immediately spring to mind, but I'm sure there are plenty more.

Yes, it really is a bed that is stored in the ceiling but at the press of a button descends into the room and will rise back up on pressing the button again.

The Liftbed is a new piece of space-saving technology from Germany designed to transform a meeting room or other space into a fully functional bedroom, or to provide suite facilities where space wouldn't normally allow.

The manufacturer says the custom-built Liftbed, which is completely hidden from view when stored in the ceiling, can nearly double the usable floor space of a room and can be a cost effective solution for hotels where space is at a premium.

Thankfully Liftbed has undergone an exhaustive programme of quality testing and meets all relevant European CE requirements, so it shouldn't be the cause of any fire brigade call-outs to rescue trapped customers.

Hog roast pork in the oven

Pulled Pork Bun150.jpgHow do you have a hog roast without roasting a whole hog? With a 'Home Cook Hog Roast' of course.

Pig producer Alastair Butler has been working with BPEX to develop a recipe for caterers to use as an alternative to roasting a whole pig carcass.

His Home Cook Hog Roast pork shoulder joint, for which he was awarded £1,000 and the ABN Innovation Award, can be cooked in the oven or on a barbecue in around 4.5 hours and the result is described by BPEX foodservice trade manager Tony Goodger as "deliciously tender pulled pork which is similar to the consistency that a traditional hog roast delivers".

A free 'Home Cook Hog Roast' recipe leaflet is available from the BPEX website or by emailing info@bpexfoodservice.com.
