Urban Sanatorium Supper

A supper for pathologic appetites held on 18 October 2009 in the W.G kunst, a former sanatorium as part of the Wilhelmina Gasthuis hospital complex, Amsterdam.

The meal was be prepared with urban medicinal plants, harvested from in and around Amsterdam. Each course a victual vaccine made of minute amounts of urbanic matter to provide resistance against and treatment for most of our urban ailments, real or imagined. From antiflogistisch aperitif to spleen fortifying stew, a supper to stave off persistent urban pathogens and unleash the hypochondric in all of us.

Cooked up by Wietske Maas with the assistance of Matteo Pasquinelli in collaboration with Cocky Eek and Theun Karelse of Urban Edibles and Foam.lab as part of the Blinde Vlekken manifestation.
