FOOD | BIGGER THAN THE PLATE COMING TO THE V&A

A huge exhibition all about our favourite thing – food – is coming to the V&A in May. FOOD: Bigger than the Plate will explore how food goes from farm to table, how we experience and enjoy it, and how we can help create a more sustainable food future.

The exhibition will feature over 70 projects and will be split into four sections – Compost, Farming, Trading and Eating – with exhibits including an urban mushroom farm using coffee grounds from the museum cafe to grow mushrooms, which’ll then be served on the menu; cheese made from human bacteria; and a new range of sausage designs to make eating protein more sustainable.

As well as brand new installations, the show will also feature historic prints, ceramics and illustrations from the museum’s collection.
