Art Shows No Comments »

We were lucky to have the wonderful and talented artist Sophie Lee working in our studio last month to create some of the beautiful bowls and serving dishes for her installation Original Recipe Meal.

Original Recipe Meal was a collaboration between artist Sophie Lee and Frank’s Café Head Chef Michael Davies and is part of a series of dinners devised by artists for the Bold Tendencies Artist Dining Space. The series was programmed by Harriet Blaise Mitchell. The meal was held in Peckham with a menu of Burnt British Bread, Bone soup with kamut, crab, preserved egg and cabbage, Bog Butter and Roman Wine! Some photos from the event below.
