Evolution of time and process is very much part of creativity and where better to see that particular artistry but in food. “Food, food, glorious food” to slightly alter a Flanders & Swann lyric.
Well the food at Twelve Friends will be glorious thanks to friends of mine who’ve chosen to work in the world of food.
Wiktor Ariburnu is a chef who I connected with much earlier this year, through Instagram. Comments and ideas that came out of commenting on each other’s stories, plus the fact I was aiming to make Twelve Friends happen, meant we decided to eat together…
It was me that was cooking and it was good; good enough anyway! During that Sunday lunch we got all excited and started writing canape lists for the Private View event. I even got to go and do a tasting of what we chose … and I have to say, I’m very excited for people experiencing the flavours he can create, whilst also experiencing a wonderful selection of art from the twelve artists.
Secondly, we are having a selection of extraordinarily tasty sweet choux pastries from lechouxlondon, a brand created by Abigail Scheuer, who is actually also an old girl at the school I went to, so that brings the total number of alumni exhibiting up to 6! An excellent half dozen and I for one, can’t wait to taste either Wiktor’s genius canapes or Abigail’s parcels of choux joy.
