Cross(x)Species Adventure Club, Melbourne
New York based environmental artist Natalie Jeremijenko and molecular gastronomy chef Mihir Desai have teamed up to deliver a unique series of events aimed at encouraging thought and discussion about environmental issues in radical new ways.
Under the banner of the Cross(x)Species Adventure Club, Jeremijenko and Desai are holding a series of clinics in Melbourne throughout December, such as The X Species Wilderness Adventures For The Palate, which employs art performance, science and modern cuisine to explore the future of food production and highlight the key issues of sustainability and biodiversity.
Other highlights include a travelling three-course edible cocktail degustation in Melbourne Museum, which aims to explore our gastronomic, economic and material interdependency on other creatures; and a five-course meal by dessert expert Pierre Roelofs. He will unravel the unique properties of Australian ecology through modern cuisine techniques and inspired ingredients.
