Are there any women out there who aren’t interested in fashion and food? We haven’t met them yet in any case! What better way to celebrate the Design Museum’s ground-breaking Women Fashion Power exhibition than with food?
The Blueprint Café’s head chef has devised a special menu inspired by fashion, and how influential women have used style to define their power and position in society. Available during February, the three-course affair opens with ‘Ready To Wear’ – a beautifully light chicken broth followed by delicate poached salmon served with roasted Jerusalem artichoke accented with aromatic mussel foam. The spectacle concludes with ‘Haute Couture’ – a showstopping gold leaf-embellished chocolate fondant accompanied with rum and banana ice cream. Chocoholics beware, you may just have met your match in this dessert! The restaurant’s spectacular views over the Thames make for a pretty stylish backdrop.
For true style devotees, on February 19th Blueprint Café is also hosting an exclusive soirée including an exhibition tour (with Champagne, bien sur) led by the Design Museum’s curator Donna Loveday, plus a truly unique four-course menu paired with matching wines. Guests will also be able to enjoy a talk and post-dinner Q&A courtesy of acclaimed British fashion designer Tabitha Webb.
