East of Osterley - Art of Dining comes to Osterley
Latest update 24.04.2014 14:52
This new collaboration between much-loved Art of Dining and National Trust London focuses on the collections of the East India Company - on your plate, in your glass and all around you. East to Osterley is a pop-up dining experience like no other combining theatre, food and set design, inspired by Osterley and the stories it has to tell.
Seize this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dine in Robert Adam’s Long Gallery at Osterley, amidst the treasures collected from the Orient by Robert Child, who will ‘personally’ regale you with tales of his adventures. As prospective patrons of the East India Trading Company, Robert Child will attempt to curry your favour and secure your investment during a sumptuous five -course dinner. Each of the five courses, designed by top chef Ellen Parr (formerly of Moro), will encapsulate the exotic flavours of the countries that Robert Child visited.
Set designer Alice Hodge will transform the stunning Long Gallery with colourful silks, birds and flowers. And, of course, The Art of Dining’s trademark interactive elements will surprise you throughout the meal.
Strolling along the tree-lined drive of Osterley House, past grazing Charolais cattle, it’s easy to forget where you are. Once described by Horace Walpole as ‘the palace of palaces’, Osterley is one of the last surviving country estates in London.
Osterley was created in the late 18th century for the Child family to entertain and impress their friends and clients. Now it’s time for you to be entertained and impressed too.
