The Gut Club Presents: The Primary Palate
05/04/2012 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
A talk and performance by The Gut Club exploring “The Primary Palate“
Using foraged plants, seasonal home grown vegetables and wild meats The Gut Club cooked on an open fire in an effort to reproduce a meal available 20,000 years ago. With none, or little salt, or oil, or spices and herbs not native to the island The Gut Club invited the participants to taste the primal palate.
The Gut Club offered a brief talk at each stage of the performance, making the fire, preparing and butchering game and plants and cooking. A longer talk and discussion covering the enteric nervous system, or gut brain, concluded the evening.
A day of foraging around Stroud in Gloucestershire was also available for those who were interested.
– The Primary Palate was nominated Special Event of the month by Whitechapel Gallery’s First Thursdays –
