Inspired by Party Skills for the End of the World, renowned Mancunian chef Mary-Ellen McTague (Aumbry, the Real Junk Food Project, MIF15’s High Tea in Wonderland) devised a dinner party with a difference. Each evening, just 20 guests shared a special last supper, with delicious and surprising food that explored themes of survival, extinction, scarcity and opulence. McTague’s creative menu gave a flavour of how we might choose to eat, and what we might have to eat, come the end of days.
