Cheese cultured from celebrity bacteria showcased at London food exhibition
NO REPORTER NARRATION.
Cheese made with bacteria taken from celebrities' ears, toes, and armpits - it's not what you'd normally expect to see at an art and design museum.
But they are among the gastronomic and farming experiments that aim to shed light on our food cycle, from the field to the plate, and on sustainability in a new exhibition at London's V&A museum - better known for its sculptures, textiles and prints.
On show at London's V&A museum are various cheeses - mozzarella, comte, cheddar, Cheshire and stilton - or "microbial portraits", made respectively from bacteria taken from rapper Professor Green, chef Heston Blumenthal, singer Suggs, musician and cheese maker Alex James and food writer Ruby Tandoh.
The exhibition also featured a ceramic toilet cooked up from cow manure, edible water bottles and a "talking plant''.
