Mythological Cuisine

Picture in Focus online exhibition – Teddington School, Middlesex

Food Technology, IT

Year 8 pupils were asked to design a meal that represented the characters in the Diana and Actaeon myth. Pupils investigated various food products, giving each an emotional attribute depending on their taste. Pupils then answered the question, 'What food would represent Diana/Actaeon/the Nymphs, based on their personalities?'

Pupils produced a three-course meal based on each character in the myth. Pupils invited staff to a tasting event, designing the invitations, table decoration, place settings and illustrating the menu in motifs that related to the landscape of the painting.
