RE.CREATE with Tate Britain: Cooking

Tate Britain

Meet 500 years of British Art, interpreted by the world's leading creatives + you

A new Tate Britain will be unveiled on 19 November 2013. 

To celebrate we're asking leading figures from the worlds of cooking, fashion, poetry, film, photography, music and comedy to share the creative processes behind their own work, inspired by 500 years of British Art.

Recreate with Tate Britain is our brand new partnership with Google. Over the coming months we'll be making films and hosting a series of Google Hangouts On Air in which great British Art is interpreted in new ways.

'Cooking meets 500 years of British art'...

Find out what The Fabulous Baker Brothers, Antonio Carluccio and Rachel Khoo dreamt up when they took up our challenge.

The Fabulous Baker Brothers, Tom and Henry are fifth generation, award-winning bakers (Henry a chef and butcher too) who you might have spotted on Channel 4.

See what they cooked up in response to Hogarth’s famous painting 'O the Roast Beef of Old England'.
