Accidental Records presents a new one-off collaboration between musicians, food writers and chefs as MATTHEW HERBERT joins forces with chef ROSIE SYKES and pop-dining legends SHACKLEWELL NIGHTS / HIDDEN DINING to present ONE PIG, DEAD AND ALIVE.
This inter-disciplinary venture is the latest instalment of Herbert’s ONE PIG project, in which he recorded the life of a single animal from birth to plate, before turning it into an acclaimed album.
Taking place in an intimate space in East London, ONE PIG, DEAD AND ALIVE invites guests to encounter ONE PIG through debate, sound and taste.
To explore ONE PIG’s food and farming themes, the event will start with a panel discussion between Matthew Herbert, legendary food writer MATTHEW FORT (The Guardian), FIRE & KNIVES proprietor TIM HAYWARD, and another soon-to-be announced special panelist.
Guests will then hear ONE PIG, played live. The show features the StyHarp, a brand-new, pig pen-shaped musical instrument which literally plays the sound of ONE PIG’s existence and adds visual drama to its narrative.
The evening will end with a three course meal including pork from the original ONE PIG farm. Food will be cooked by The Guardian’s Kitchen Doctor and author of The Kitchen Revolution, Rosie Sykes, and presented by Shacklewell Nights.
The menu for the evening will be:
Pork Rillettes, Cornichons and Sourdough Bread
Roast Pork Loins & Legs & Braised Shoulders with Lentils & Mustard
Bitter Winter Leaf Salad
Apple Crumble & Clotted Cream
Tickets: £57.00 Standard
