We like to think of our food as a playful journey of discovery. We appreciate that there are internationally recognised rules for cuisine, but here at Tate, we seek the freedom to explore the world through our cooking, free from the restraints that have been put in place since time immemorial. Culinary expressionism or food art, are both simply words to describe our passion, we simply want to convey our imagination, emotions and memories into the food we create.
Our “Edible Stories” series are inspired by things all around us, stories or simply even abstract thoughts. We visualize and internalize to create, we think about the sounds we hear, the smells in the air and the colours we see all around us, we dig into our memories to draw inspiration.
Once we’ve extracted the essence of our memories we then reconstruct everything to create our experience through food. Within the narrative of our dish each ingredient has their own character that reveals our story, while the aromas and textures reveal the plot.
