Visionary, artist, culinary philosopher, experience designer, gastro-activist, and educator Charles X Michel (The Final Table, Netflix, World's 50 Best #50Next Class of 2022) is coming to Los Angeles for a series of spectacular events culminating with Three Paintings, a multi-course immersive dining experience and live performance by CxM himself. 

FOOD. ART. SCIENCE. COMMUNITY.

For most of human evolution, food was at the centre of our families, communities, societies. The food system is one of the main pillars of modern civilization. Today, most humans live disconnected from our agricultural roots: we have lost our connection to food. Humanity and natural ecosystems are suffering from many ills, some of which are caused by unconscious and untethered consumption. Charles X Michel believes food education, innovation, and the power of community will play an important role in bringing back balance within ourselves, with each other, and with natural ecosystems.

THE EXPERIENCES:

THREE PAINTINGS 

An Immersive Performance & Dining Experience by CxM
Weds Aug 17th, 7-10pm. $300pp

An experience designer, artist, and flavor expert, Charles X Michel uses food and the meal ritual as media to inspire conscious eating and regenerative solutions in the relationship between humans and nature. In this immersive dinner in 3 acts by Charles X Michel, Three Paintings is an invitation to commune and conspire - to breathe together - and reconnect our senses to the elemental power of food. Do not expect a conventional seated dining experience...

CxM will collaborate with Kodō to create three edible landscapes. The main act will showcase the concept that Charles had designed for the finale of Netflix's The Final Table cooking competition - this will be the first (and only?) time he will perform this creation in front of an audience.

Weds Aug 17th, 4-6pm. $100pp
