KERB push the boundaries this June as they launch KERB Crates – a series of open-air lunchtime talks and performances exploring the theme ‘What is the city for?’. We get behind-the-scenes with Angus Denoon, of The Everybody Love Love Jhal Muri Express…
Inspired by the exchanges that took place in ancient Athenian marketplaces between philosophers Plato and Socrates get to KERB KX every Thursday in June for a variety of speakers from the arts, food and academic industries. Angus, you’re up…
What street food dishes does The Everybody Love Love Jhal Muri Express serve?
Jhal Muri, a dish from Bengali cuisine that is made from a puffed rice and many spices.
How did you begin your street food experience?
I just walked out onto a street and waited till someone asked for one.
What did you learn in Kolkata about the food, and ways in which people enjoy it there?
That great things grow up, they don’t filter down. I realised the importance of simple seasoning and the way food is presented. And nothing beats the fact that simple is best.
What did you want bring out of your experience there, to the dishes you serve today?
Taste, texture, theatre and some more taste.
Where can we find you over summer?
Everywhere, KERB of course and other pop up events in lots of other locations, the best thing is to follow me on social media to find out more @Jhalmuriexpress
How has KERB evolved during the time you’ve been there?
Its impact has grown but the basic principles have remained the same and that is a good thing.
What will you be discussing at KERB Crates?
How a city can fast track evolution for good or bad and the importance of nourishing our humanity.
