The Edible Cinema sets to return next month at a venue yet to be announced. The Edible Cinema aims to create a whole new cinematic experience using taste, aroma and texture. They choose a movie and create a menu based on the film you are watching.
The recent production of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ featured tongue sandwiches made out of ox tongue, bread croute, olive oil, duck liver parfait and pea shoot during the “Two Blushing Pilgrim” scene. There are also vegetarian options and non alcoholic options for movies like ‘Withnail & I’. In the film ‘Perfume: The Story of a Murderer’ the menu was created by Jake Rigby-Wilson who served roses in the roses scene made out of rose mousse, white chocolate, chocolate covered rose petals with rose scent (created by Louise Bloor). Some of the food can be silly for example, in ‘Spirited Away’ Sen’s Tears are made with Bombay Sapphire, Creme de Cacao, Martini Bianco and Sea Salt as a drink and the sea salt makes it taste like tears.
The Edible Cinema offers a relaxing and comfortable movie experience compared to what you get at your local cinema. You can choose to sit on a velvety red armchair, a sofa or even a sofa bed for those who want to chill out and pretend they’re at home. They also provide you with cashmere blankets for a truly relaxing and homey experience.
The Edible Cinema is set to come back at the end of August (based on their Twitter account). The location and movie is yet to be confirmed and the tickets are usually around £20 to £40 (based on past events). For more details about upcoming movies and events check out www.ediblecinema.co.uk.
