Living Dinners was a platform to explore a niche aspect of food creation.

Vegetables as the main dish and the diversity of ways they can be prepared in.To specialise for any amount of time in one aspect of cooking. I believe makes you better at the whole thing.

Living Dinners is a playground to explore this theory. Vegetables are kept raw. i.e. not “cooked” above 42 degrees and without the extra creaminess of dairy gluten or refined products. They are served in there most natural form.Healthy nutritious and beneficial for our bodies. 

Living Dinners Started with thirty friends gathered in a warehouse off Camden Street in December 2012.

The Dinners have been hosted in Art Galleries, Old milkaries, Georgian Derelict houses, and a Wicklow rainforest. Un-conventional spaces that are twisted and turned to offer a backdrop for a once off experience.
