Floral dinner at Town House, Spitalfields

Wednesday night was the first in a series of curated dinners at Town House. My favourite venue ever, with its 300 year history, candle lit dining room and the fact that guests are surrounded by art and antiques. For this event, I worked with local florists Worm, who made table displays that were inspired by still life paintings. Fiona Atkins, antique dealer, and the building's owner, gave a talk exploring the past life of the house and the tradition of table displays. Carrying on the floral theme, I designed a menu using edible flowers, saffron and rose petals and experimenting with ways of using floral scents in cooking.
