Caroline's unusual background of living in both Berlin and London and her unique take on food, history and art is mesmerising. She uses food as performance and social commentary, drawing inspiration from the likes of Judy Chicago and the Futurist Cookbook. Trained at Central Saint Martin's, Caroline's past projects have included an underground restaurant in Berlin to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall - where guests stepped into a time-warped space filled with commemorative memorabilia and the party for each evening was split in two, with each faction presented with a different menu and each course alluding to a different chapter of the Cold War. Upcoming projects also include a very Mad Hatter's Tea Party at the Barbican and BRoKen BiScuits, a gastro-geographical journey through Shoreditch. Caroline’s work has been featured by the New York Times and Die Zeit.
