Experiencing the colours of Hong Kong grown vegetables through making a personal Edible Collage, then a taste through the rainbow in a colour themed dinner with a red, black, green and purple course.
It was harves time in Hong Kong, we had a beautiful selection of seasonal vegetables which included Chinese pigweed, roselle flowers, long beans, basil flowers, basil, cabbage, daikon, dragonfruit, mushroom, asparagus, rainbow chard, rosemary, okra, sesame leaves, chili pepper and sweet potatoes.
The edible college was the first course, once guests were finished with their collage, they were invited to eat their collage with homemade mayo and salad dressings. The following dinner courses were dominated by different colours, red (tomato and strawberry gazpacho), green (fried Japanese green peppers), black (scallop risotto with squid ink) and purple (Taro flavoured popsicle).
We also worked with a Sound Director to pair each course with different music complimentary to the moods of the colours. For the black course we wanted to create a solemn mood, so we told our guests to eat in silence and people ate very quickly so they could talk again after they finish!
