Food: Bigger than the Plate

Heston Bumenthal from the Fat Duck, Alex James from Blur, Ruby Tandor from The Great British Bake-off, Suggs from Madness and Professor Green all donated their bacteria to create their own special brand of cheese. But not just any cheese.

Biodesigner’s Helene Steiner and Tom Meany teamed up with Youtube star The Food Busker and the celebrities above to create a cheese for the Victoria and Albert Museum – made from their own bacteria.

The documentary followed the team as they sampled the celebrities, grew their bacteria, churned the cheese, and eventually ate a piece of human.

It was used in the lead up to the launch event at the Victoria and Albert museum where the celebrities cheeses were on display.

And it certainly generated some interesting press.
