THE RITUAL OF SHARING FOOD
18:30 – 19:30
Bluecoat Display Centre
The ritual of breaking bread with friends and family is very important as it not only nourishes us both physically and emotionally but it draws people together.
Sharing plates of food gives everyone the chance to taste something new, bringing people together in a new shared experience.How food is presented is also very important in how we experience it, the rituals surrounding the meal and the company at the table with us.
Recent graduate Natalie Moon, an exhibitor in current exhibition New Makers will talk about her contemporary ceramics that challenge our perception of ‘the plate’ and how it is used. Natalie uses her beautiful ceramics to enhance and reinterpret the ritual sharing of food, by creating separate components that can be used in various different ways, making it an interactive experience where the user decides the function and the set.
Natalie will be joined by Peter Kinsella, chef and owner of Lunya and Lunyalita, the fabulous Catalonian deli, restaurant and bar in Liverpool and Manchester. Peter will share his passion for Catalonian and Spanish food, and reveal how he makes his delicious pinchos- small snacks that are typically served in Spanish bars -perfect for sharing.
