3-5-13 Pop-up : Surprise!

For this Media Lab pop-up dinner, I wanted to play with "unexpectations". Who says dinner needs to be predictable?


The pop-up dinner took place in a conference room on the 4th floor.

"Dessert" Course
Savory cupcake with herb-infused cream

Mixing appearance and taste.


Cheese Course
Cheddar, asiago, white chocolate

Playing with the fact that white chocolate looks a lot like cheese.


tonic jelly

Three jellies, three colors, three different musical accompaniments.


Eating Together
Baba ganoush, hummus, muhammara, basil yogurt dip, quinoa salad

Everyone got a different plate in front of them. Some kind of sharing scheme needed to be figured out.


Eating alone
Greek yogurt mousse, rosewater strawberries, apricot puree, pistachios. Eye masks and ear plugs.

A dessert course with optional visual and aural deprivation.


Rosemary and rose vapor

An aroma course in a secret lounge...
