Blackpool’s famous Winter Gardens Pavilion is set to play host to a special meal with a difference on Saturday 24 October. Dishing the Dirt is a performance meal created by artist Kerry Morrison, of artist collective In-Situ, and FoodRiot chef Gill Watson, which will take audiences on a culinary adventure through sustainable food.
The meal forms part of LeftCoast’s Banquet event which aims to bring together artists and communities for a celebration of food and the joy of eating together. It combines performances, installations, talks and shared meals which all explore food, what it means to us and where it comes from
Gill and Kerry have created an ingenious seven course menu made up of mainly food that can be foraged, where every ingredient has been carefully selected to give a fascinating and thought provoking insight into food. The meal will be full of surprises and is definitely not one for the faint hearted with special contributions throughout including one from vegan taxidermist Nicola Jane Hebson, star of Channel 4’s All Creatures Great and Stuffed, plus a special appearance from soil expert Dr Charlie Clutterbuck.
Dishing the Dirt takes place on Saturday 24 October in the Pavilion Theatre in the Winter Gardens from 12pm.
Unfortunately the meal cannot accommodate any special dietary requirements and will include both meat and shellfish.
