Focus… Global Feast

A plethora of creative and inspirational projects are popping up around London to celebrate the Olympic Games and the opening ceremony taking place tomorrow night – are you excited?!.  

 Architect Alex Haw of Atmos and acclaimed supper club chef Kerstin Rodgers (visit her blog MsMarmiteLover !) joined forces and launched a pop-up restaurant yesterday, Global Feast ,in Stratford Town Hall near Olympic Park, with an astonishing 20-night lineup of exceptional cuisine from across the world. Together they have curated a delicious culinary adventure that showcases the best of supper club culture. Top supper club chefs from across London and further afield have been selected to host one night each, with their menus celebrating the delicacies of their chosen part of the world.

“Our culinary journey starts, like our species, in Africa—on the Western tip of Senegal, opening alongside the first Olympic event (football),” says Haw about what diners can expect. “Travelling east, we land at home on the opening night of the Olympic ceremony, with fireworks visible from our courtyard, to celebrate the best of host nation Britain. We continue east through Europe and onwards past Asia, from old world to new, to end our entire journey the night after the last Olympic event by passing on the baton to Rio de Janeiro—with a climactic fiesta of Brazilian Carnival.”

Haw’s also managed with Global Feast to achieve his long-held ambition to seat people at the tallest table in the world; his Worldscape design is a “voluptuous, CNC-carved landscape, a vast, 3D model of world terrain, seating 80 people on its ocean contours to dine off its coastlines, illuminated by its cities, shadowed by its mountains.”
