Sam Bompas & Harry Parr set up their company, Jellymongers, in 2007 and receive numerous commissions for their bespoke jellies and moulds, as well as constant requests to host unusual food events worldwide. Blurring the boundaries between art and food, they have featured on Heston Blumenthal's Feast programme, hosted a jelly banquet for over 2000 people with jellies designed by leading architects, created a 'walk-in cocktail' installation, a chocolate waterfall, created cocktail 'lakes' for their lucky guests to row across... the list goes on. They have featured on many TV shows, including Martha Stewart's US show, and in the national and international press.

Review quote

""Feasting" achieves something that American chefs can't really seem to get the hang of in their cookbooks, but British and Canadian chefs manage to pull off from time to time: this book is fun." --Eater.com
