Avant garde art and food clash – in a creative and thought-provoking way, of course – at the Experimental Food Society’s two-day exhibition in east London on November 8/9. Expect a mind-boggling display of artworks  – some of them edible – from the UK’s top food artists, cake artists, sugar designers and butter sculptors (who knew such jobs existed?), including a five-foot replica of Venice’s Rialto Bridge formed entirely of pasta and crackers (see above), and a mosaic of a tea picker made from 2,500 sugar cubes. Treats for the ear include talks by food futurologists and experimental confectioners, as well as Petra Barran, founder of street-food collective Kerb. You can even have your portrait painted in Marmite on a piece of toast.

Details and tickets (£7 per day) from experimentalfoodsociety.com
