Andy Warhol's artwork is coming to Tate Modern this March — and with it, a new menu capturing his bold, bright — and occasionally egregious — artworks.

Beginning 12 March, Tate Eats presents Flavours from The Factory, a sweet and savoury tasting menu at the museum's Blavatnik Building restaurant. The creations, concocted by Head Chef Jon Atashroo, include Tuna Fish Disaster and Chocks cream cheese sandwich, while homage is paid to Warhol's sweet tooth with the likes of Coca Cola jelly, cornflakes panna cotta and bacon ice cream.

Atashroo was inspired by Warhol's own words from his autobiography: "When I order in a restaurant, I order everything that I don't want, so I have a lot to play around with while everyone else eats.”

Many of the dishes are inspired by either by Warhol's works or by his eccentric personality. So even if you don't love the taste of every one, they'll looked darned good on Instagram.

In addition to the new menu, Tate Modern is offering sundae making masterclasses, while Warhol’s favourite frozen hot chocolate will be available throughout the gallery's cafés.
