Friends Of The Earth's Extraordinary Banquet
14 March 2013 - One Mayfair, North Audley St, W1K 6ZA
Friends of the Earth is thrilled to announce its forthcoming Extraordinary Banquet event; a unique evening of experimental food and performances inspired by the life and principles of Linda McCartney, with support from friends Dame Vivienne Westwood and Jo Wood and compered by Clive Anderson.
The evening will feature a one-off UK performance from Grammy-nominated classical musician Julian Wachner; a special live performance from critically acclaimed soul and blues singer Natalie Duncan; unique beat-boxing collaborations live on stage and a multi-sensory, experimental menu to tease the senses, selected by Sir Paul McCartney and brought to life by Zafferano.
The magical menu will include edible sand and soil, pistachio trees, passion fruit caviar, jewelled quail eggs, glow-in-the-dark cucumber, agave nectar, and strawberry and cream mushrooms.
Linda saw things differently; she saw the well-being of people and the planet as hand in hand. Friends of the Earth shares this vision and for forty years has secured safer food and water, defended wildlife and natural habitats, and acted to keep our climate stable. I encourage you to join me and lend your support to Friends of the Earth. Sir Paul McCartney
