Check Out This Edible Art Inspired By Roald Dahl

If you were ever envious of the lickable wall paper or the chocolate river in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, be jealous no more!

This week at White Conduit Projects in Islington, you can feast your eyes (and tongues) on a range of edible artwork, and stimulate your senses at an exhibition inspired by Violet Beauregard — the girl who turned into a giant blueberry in the famous Roald Dahl book.

Violet Beauregard's Gum kicks off on 20 July; grab a complimentary cocktail from Chase Distillery, at the opening party.

You can learn about food in literature on 21 July, with a discussion featuring blogger and supper club hostess extraordinaire Ms Marmite Lover, writers Travis Elborough and Anita Sethi, and queen of DIY, Eithne Farry.

Then, on 22 July, there's a chance to taste painting-inspired jelly art by Bompas & Parr, as well as artwork-imitating canapés prepared by chef Thomas Straker (formerly of Dinner by Heston Blumenthal and The Dorchester) and creative chef Cicely Violet.

Finally, on 23 July, you can make an edible vegetable village with your little ones, from 2.30pm.

And the best thing about this Roald Dahl inspired extravaganza? It's totally free!

Violet Beauregard's Gum is on at White Conduit Projects, Islington 20-23 July. Free entry to exhibition and events, but there's limited space — get there early. Check out the website or the Facebook event for more info.
