Christabel's Edible Playground
Christabel's Edible Playground is a nostalgic and playful pop-up dining experience, set in her beautiful old street apartment.
Around 20 people are squeezed along two long dining tables which are scattered with an array of props including old children's classics - remember Baba the elephant? - random plastic toys, as well as giant cards for table-mats. It was quite a spectacle.
The evening offered up four courses, encouraging diners to play with their food (years of parental training gone in an instant), and with competitions for the best food come art installation.
We played 'Snakes and Ladders' with our starter of pea mash and feta cubes, build a quinoa sandcastle with a tiny bucket and spade, created portraits with our main of soy honey ginger chicken, and there was a climatic end with shortbread jenga for our final course.
The food itself, although perfectly tasty (even after what we did to it) was probably not worth the price tag alone - if you're after culinary greatness then spend your money elsewhere. But if you're more of an 'experience' fan, then what could be better than being transported back to a colourful childhood world, combined with BYOB!
