Tan Rosie to Represent the Caribbean at the Eat the World Global Feast
Birmingham based chefs and food producers Tan Rosie will be representing the Caribbean during the Eat the World Global Feast – An Olympic Dining Experience on Saturday 11 August.
The Global Feast, an exciting new food experience, offers different world cuisines each night of the Olympics, as diners sit round a giant sculptural model of the world – 15-metres long, 6-metres wide and over 2-metres tall – an installation doubling as both table and seating and just a stone’s throw from the Olympic Park, at Stratford Town Hall, London.
The event organised by Latitudinal Cuisine and curated and co-hosted by Kerstin Rodgers of The Underground Restaurant, will see Chefs Monica Cudjoe and Lee Sylvester from Tan Rosie take guests through a journey of the Caribbean on their night – with dishes from Grenada, Jamaica and Cuba along with their own creative interpretations.
Their night’s four course menu will include different Caribbean dishes such as slow roasted jerk belly pork and stuffed plantains with spinach canapés, hearty dishes of curry mutton with rice and peas and will all be washed down Monica’s homemade ginger drink.
During the event each guest will dine in a unique part of the sculptural space, designed by atmos – the art and architecture studio founded by Alex Haw. Guests will sit upon sculptured oceans, coastlines, cities and mountains – with a bespoke set of plates and napkins illustrating their location in the world.
Lee Sylvester of Tan Rosie said: “Taking part in such an exciting event is a real delight for both Monica and I. We are proud that on our night that we will be representing our Caribbean heritage but to also to be part of this twenty day event that takes people across the globe. The event is a great example of the diverse cultures we have here in the UK and the influence this has had on our food.”
Monica Cudjoe and Lee Sylvester (Tan Rosie) will be the guest chefs for the Caribbean Evening of Global Feast 2012 at Stratford Old Town Hall, London on Saturday 11th August.
