A collaborative project at London’s Langham hotel has helped to “unfold” new ideas and exchange inspiration between the kitchen and its bar, Artesian.

Called “Unfolding”, it was launched in 2013 with an annual charity event, the Unfolding Dinner, that celebrates the union of food and drink. It was devised by Chris King, executive chef at Roux at The Landau, with Artesian’s bartenders Alex Kratena and Simone Caporale.

The hotel’s suppliers donate all produce and all staff work for free. Alex said: “As much as this project stimulates creativity and supports good cause, it is first of all a wonderful team exercise.”

This new video shows Alex Kratena, Simone Caporale, Chris King, Rudi Carraro and Roman Foltan planning the 2014 dinner.

The film was made by Luminescent Drive and directed by Marek Mysicka.
