Asparagasm presents ‘Shaw’s Redemption’- a vegan and gluten-free fine-dining event featuring spectacular installation and performance and the four courses of the apocalypse.
Elect to come to the most apocalyptic Asparagasm to date after you’ve been to the ballot. In honour of Irish Nobel prize winner George Bernard Shaw – the passionate and vocal grandfather of Victorian-era vegetarianism – Asparagasm presents ‘Shaw’s Redemption’ on Thursday 7th, Friday 8th and Saturday 9th May at Studio Spaces on atmospheric Pennington Street, E1.
Presenting guest chefs Fredrik Bolin, of Disappearing Dining Club fame, and Paul Foster; Executive Chef for Asparagasm Gloucestershire; town meets country in a culinary collision of vegan and gluten-free fine dining.
The night begins with a welcome Dry Martini courtesy of Cotswold Dry gin, a heaven-scented lavender infused distillation with a cloudy twist, or a fruit punch for the non-libatious. A licensed bar includes vegan and organic wines by Vintage Roots and award-winning Asparagasm pale ale from Stroud Brewery.
The dessert denouement welcomes a site-specific performance from the artiste Paka and Rusty, a life size fire-breathing mechanical horse. With installations from sensational steam punk sculpturalists, Circus Kinetica, we explore the wheel of life with the four courses of the apocalypse and a sonic soundscape by Key Changes.
To conclude this seasonally-inspired great British feast, a board meeting of great taste as Paul Foster presents the latest incarnations of Asparagasm’s artisan nut cultured vegan cheeses.
Tickets are £40 per person inclusive of welcome drink, dinner and performance. Available online at Event Briteor to book direct or make a group booking enquiry email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07947 309066.
