Food has the ability to bring people together by creating opportunities for interaction. It is also a medium for artistic expression and a tool for exploring culture.
Food can provoke thought, emotions, memories and creativity as well as stimulate the senses so it would be a terrible waste not to utilize it.
Gastronomi walks the line between art installation, architecture, event and gastronomy. Each event is unique and provides a playground for experiments creating a
sensual and mental food experience.
A one-off, tailor-made concept is conceived, concocted, and cooked to capture a moment in space through time. Put simply, it is edible architecture.
Exhibition openings, special events, unusual parties, pop- up installations and
workshops are all ideal settings for such an event.
*This may all sound complicated, but it really isn’t.
Melting Pot Dinner
A bespoke eating experience created for The White City Centre, TLV, 2016
The concept dinner took place in the former private dining room of a Jewish German immigrants’ family home, now repurposed as a public research & education center. Diners were invited to gather around a large communal table and experience a typical festive Israeli family meal in a private- public space that evoked a sense of family, home & Gemütlichkeit as well as history, tradition and conviviality.
The Sabbath dinner, a weekly ritual in most Israeli households, is typically composed of an excessively large array of dishes reflecting the ‘Israeli cuisine’; the existing local food culture, local ingredients and the various cuisines and food memories brought by each Diaspora. The abundance of cooking pots formed a new topography; an aesthetic and gastronomic experience indicative of the various cuisines and cultures, both local and from afar, coming together to create a new identity, thus, a melting pot.
