Alice Hodge and Ellen Parr

This duo run The Art of Dining events: immersive dining and theatrical pop-up experiences at unusual locations across London. Alice, a set designer, and Ellen, a Moro-trained chef, scour the city for the perfect venues for their themed events, and have hosted everything from Tudor feasts in grand dining halls to kitsch seventies-era dinners. When they’re not working, they tend a vegetable patch, scour the city for quirky props, and swim al fresco
in Hampstead.
