The average tasting menu can comprise over a dozen courses and last for hours, but for the truly committed diner, that's small fries. London-based creative agency Bompas and Parr have come up with a totally novel concept: A 200-course tasting menu timed to be consumed over the course of 24 hours. The Standard did the math: That means one course every seven minutes and 14 seconds.
Arranged as 10 different 20-course meals, each grouped by color, the price of the experience is just as eye-popping as the amount of food: Tickets for the one-time event are 2,000 GBP, or about $3130 USD.
Is it an exercise in excess? Meant to poke fun at the ever-increasing demands of the high-end diner? A marathon-like test of a food-lover's appetite, will-power, and endurance? It is perhaps all of these, as Bompas and Parr is well-known in the UK for pushing the culinary envelope.
The 200 Club takes place in the 24 hours between September 3 and September 4.
