Flavour of the Month presents....We Love Crisps

Nov 28 2019 19:00 - 21:30

The Curtain, 45 Curtain Rd, EC2A 3PT London

Instant noodles, cheese snax, powdered butterscotch mousse, the gold dust at the bottom of the crisp packet...

They were the foods that defined our youth and that maybe we left behind. But at new talk-and-tasting series Flavour of the Month, they're coming back in all their glory.

Each time host Lizzie Ostrom and flavourist Steve Pearce deconstruct one of your favourite factory foods, from crisps to candy. 

This month....crisps! Thin cut, thick cut, crinkle cut, any cut. It's a snack many of us would be quite happy to live off exclusively. Whether you're a salt'n'vinegar faithful or loyal to cheese and onion, crisp and potato snack flavourings are masterworks of creativity and science. And they powerfully remind us of vivid moments in our life history, from dissolving Quavers on your tongue after-school, to sharing a single pack between five round the pub table, and the Kettle Chips of aspiring twenty-something dinner parties. 

Tonight, we'll sample the individual ingredients flavourists combine to concoct the perfect moreish packet, dosed on dissolvable wafers. Discover some of the amazing crisp trends from around the world. And for the first time ever, try a specially-commissioned London flavour crisp made by the team at Omega Ingredients, redolent of brick dust and dirt.

Tickets include a crisp-dust martini (or mocktail) and the crisp and flavouring tasting. 


+18s only. No cancellations or date transfers but if you can't make it feel free to pass on your ticket to a friend.
