Literature: Hot Pot at Whitworth Art
- Thu 14 Sep 2017
- 7:00 pm
Join FEAST for complimentary oysters to celebrate the launch of the publication Hot Pot, a series of responses to the work of writer and composer Anthony Burgess and his passion for food.
Taking Burgess’s recipe for Lancashire hot pot as a framework from which to discuss and interpret the varied activities of preparing, producing and consuming food, Hot Pot brings together new works by Will Carr, Melanie Jackson, Kit Poulson, Niamh Riordan and Marie Toseland as well as a collection of recipes from Manchester chef Mary Ellen McTague, Fairland Collective and Studio Morison. Diverse, expansive and idiosyncratic, each contribution to the book presents a unique take on Burgess’s recipe for hot pot and the role of food more generally throughout his extensive oeuvre.
Oysters for the launch are being kindly provided by Randall and Aubin Manchester. Hot Pot has been developed by Laura Mansfield with the support of Will Carr & Dust Collective.
This one-hour event takes place at Whitworth Art Gallery. Free: no booking required.
