Mirka Mora's Vichyssoise cooked by Long Prawns Fred + Laura.
Documentation Freya Esders
Cold puree served from a consommé bowl originating from either paranoid King Louis XV who insisted servants taste his food before consumption, making it cold upon reaching his lips; or the French chef at the Ritz Carlton NYC in 1917 who adapted a family habit of cooling this famous French soup with milk in the peak of summer.
~ EVENT B. Barcelona (GMT+1)
Ana Flores’ Cocido Madrileño cooked by Clara
Documentation Adrian Morris
Stew dating back beyond the 17th Century likely used to warm those working in the colder, mountainous region of Cantabria in Northern Spain that is served in 'tres vuelcos' (three overturns of the pot) named after a deck of cards.
Course 1 ‘Sota’ (jack): caldo/broth
Course 2 ‘Caballo’ (horse): vegetal
Course 3 ‘Rey’ (king): meat + chickpeas
~ EVENT C. London (GMT+0)
The Decorators Broxit (Brexit Broth) cooked by Long Prawn Lauren.
As an ode to the Brexit climate in the UK, but more specifically in the city of London, The Decorators created a soup recipe that mixes their nationalities together – CO, PT, CA, FR, IE, BR, LT, TW. It reflects them in the elements of ritual, processes and ingredients, conjuring up a feel-good comfort boost whilst dealing with the workings of their city.
We hosted this event with Rachel Elliot Jones at her wonderful 1950s duplex apartment in Bowater House, Golden Lane Estate - a modernist development designed by Chamberlin, Powell & Bon.
