Gourmet Dining on the Go: 12-Course Meal in a Can

 |  |  |  |  |  August 14, 2013

Have you ever had a 12-course meal? The most I’ve had was eight, and I had a hard enough time keeping everything down by the end of the night. However, being too full isn’t a problem with the 12-Course Meal in a Can, for obvious reasons.

12Course in a Can1

Basically, what you get is what you see. All twelve courses have been mushed and pulverized before being packed into a tight layer into the can. Here’s a list of all twelve courses:

  • Selection of local cheeses with sourdough bread
  • Pickled kobe beef with charred strawberry
  • Ricotta ravioli with a soft egg yolk
  • Shitake mushroom topped with filled peppers
  • Halibut poached in truffle butter in a coconut crepe
  • Risotto with foraged ramps, prosciutto and fresh parmesan
  • French onion soup with fresh thyme and gruyere cheese
  • Roast pork belly and celeriac root puree
  • Palate cleanser: pear ginger juice
  • Rib eye steak with grilled mustard greens
  • Crack pie with milk ice cream on a vanilla tuile
  • French canele with a malt barley and hazelnut latte

To be honest, the whole thing looks like some weird, multi-colored meatloaf that went bad a few years ago. But hey, this is as fancy and compact as a 12-course meal can get.

The whole thing was a project by designer Christopher Godfrey, who wanted make a statement about gimmicks in contemporary culture. What do you think? Would you eat this stuff?
