Art Imitates Fine Dining: Here's A 12-Course Tasting Menu In A Can

It's no secret that tasting menus are one of the culinary world's hottest trends. Chefs are eager to show off their repertoire with 12-course meals and diners are willing to go to great lengths to land coveted restaurant reservations and sample a parade of dishes. But is this style of dining only inclusive of the rich? Perhaps! Artist Chris Godfrey has a solution, one that offers "the average Joe the chance to dine like royalty without the washing up." The All in One 12-course meal (in a can) includes, from the top down:

  • A selection of local cheeses with sourdough bread  
  • Pickled kobe beef with charred strawberry
  • Ricotta ravioli with a soft egg yolk
  • Shiitake mushroom topped with filled peppers
  • Halibut poached in truffle butter in a coconut crepe  
  • Risotto with foraged ramps, prosciutto, and fresh Parmesan
  • French onion soup with fresh thyme and gruyère
  • Roast pork belly and celeriac root puree
  • A palate cleanser of pear ginger juice
  • Rib eye steak with grilled mustard greens
  • Crack pie with milk ice cream on a vanilla tuile 
  • French canele with a malt barley and hazelnut latte.
  • Did you get all that? Sounds good on paper, but imagine that all squished together in a can? No need to imagine, scroll down for photos:
