London-based Cooking Sections advances the cause of environmental justice using research, video and installation. Their ‘Climavore’ project was a huge success last year when 21 cultural institutions across the UK removed farmed salmon from their restaurant menus and introduced planet-friendly ingredients such as seaweed, sea vegetables and bivalves. In conjunction with Back to Earth, the Serpentine North exhibit in response to the climate crisis, they created a special menu for his restaurant, The Magazine. Their tomato on toast starter features hemp seed pesto and is a perfect match for the Seaweed Seeper, a gin-based cocktail topped with samphire.
