Tate Britain Special event

Artist and Empire inspired four-course meal

The YBFs – food laid out on a table

Continuing the series ‘Exploring the Tate collection through food and drink' the Rex Whistler restaurant will take you on a culinary journey to discover the food and drinks of the old British Empire.

A four-course menu has been designed by our head chef Anthony Martin in collaboration with the food historian Joanna Cheetham. The inspiration of this menu is derived from the writings and published works of new world explorers, chefs and food writers such us Captain Cook, Mrs Beeton and Hannah Glasse. The period covered spans from the Tudor dynasty to the twentieth century (c.1485 – 1930). During the evening Joanna will provide some historical context and background of the dishes served. 

Tickets are £81.00 for Members (£90.00 for non-Members), this includes a private view of the Artist and Empire exhibition, canapés, drinks reception and four-course dinner matched with fine wine at the Rex Whistler restaurant.
