Sometimes, as you head home after another tough day at the office you think, "I wish I could now indulge on a medieval-style 12-course banquet, but I just can't face the inevitably enormous preparation and planning required to accomplish such a task".
Well, today is your lucky day as designer Chris Godfrey has created this astonishing 12-course meal in a can. We'll overlook the fact that it looks a little like dog food, and concentrate on the treats contained within, namely:
-A selection of local cheeses with sourdough bread
-Pickled Kobe beef with charred strawberry
-Ricotta ravioli with a soft egg yolk
-Shitake mushroom topped with filled peppers
-Halibut poached in truffle butter in a coconut crepe
-Risotto foraged ramps, prosciutto and fresh parmesan
-French onion soup with fresh thyme and gruyere cheese
-Roast pork belly and celeriac root puree
-Palate cleanser, pear ginger juice
-Rib eye steak with grilled mustard greens
-Crack pie with milk ice cream on a vanilla tuile
-French canele with a malt barley and hazelnut latte
Chris states that, "my main inspirations in producing this piece was the original Willy Wonka film and Heston Blumenthal’s creations. The use of the can is a nod to Andy Warhol."
We're sure Andy would have enjoyed having one of these after a long day in the studio. We eagerly await its commercial release; surely a deal with Heinz - or Winalot - cannot be too far away.
