Waste Proposal Unit at Outhouse, Norwich

Im up in Norwich continuing a project I started last year with Critical Practice called Waste Proposal Unit. I was invited here by Outpost Gallery as part of their series of short residencies this summer for CAN 09 entitled Outhouse.

During the last few days I've been meeting local growers, producers and food retailers and developing recipes based on these interactions.

More information here: Bantamweight. Also, do make a visit Outpost Gallery's blog.

If you're around in Norwich on Tuesday night, come to Outpost Gallery's Outhouse building from 6pm for an event where we'll be cooking with the recipes of the last few days. It's on Colegate, look for the A-board outside. Hope to see you there!

Norfolk Basil

As a follow-up to (and in the spirit of) Mike Knowlden's "Waste Proposal Unit" here is a picture of the basil cuttings we bought from Norwich Market on the day of the event (14th May), which still survive in a glass of water on the windowsill back in London. The bunch of basil cost us 1, and has been used to cook for fifty two people in a gallery, and now continues to provide us with basil over a fortnight later.

Waste Proposal Unit at Outpost Gallery, Norwich

I will be preparing and serving food at the Outpost Gallery, Norwich on Wednesday 14th May as part of the series of events Kaavous Clayton meets Martino Gamper. This food will be free to all, and will be based on the foods and ingredients that I discussed with the visitors to the Market of Ideas, an event in London earlier this year run by the research cluster Critical Practice. At the Outpost Gallery I will be cooking with Josh Pollen, who is a member of catering team Three Second Rule, and fellow WTCDTD contributor/curator.

This is a part of an ongoing project entitled Waste Proposal Unit, that approaches food wastage and its economics through culinary development.

Resources are developing at this page on Critical Practice's wiki.

If you are in Norwich on Wednesday, please come along for lunch, dinner or both!
