IF I KNEW YOU WERE COMING,

I'D HAVE BAKED A CAKE: LONDON

The Ace Hotel in the Shoreditch neighborhood of London hosted Put A Egg On It's traveling art installation and pop-up shop If I Knew You Were Coming, I'd Have Baked A Cake in November of 2016. For 3 days we traded stories for meals in the Ace's Gallery Bar. We shopped at London's Borough Market and cooked purple carrot and celery root soup for David Lane, designer and editor of The Gourmand, and his 2-year old son Jacob. David shared how his magazine started with an idea at a dinner party. BBZ London came over for Vietnamese-style pork tacos and talked to us about family drama unfolding over the breakfast table and eating the best chicken on earth while running to catch a plane. Other guests included, Jeremy Leslie from MagCulture, writer Sarah Snaith, a musician who ordered donkey penis at a restaurant in China and a few expats missing their favorite hometown foods.

If I Knew You Were Coming, I'd Have Baked A Cake grew out of our fascination with sharing food and stories, receiving unexpected visitors, and using forms of money-less exchange. Starting in Tokyo and finishing in New York, Put A Egg On It is taking the project around the world, creating of people through their stories and look at the common threads and the unique moments between people via the food they make and share.
