Wednesday, 14th April 2021, 6:00 am

CrEATe X Chow Down is a five-hour event in the Temple Arches on May 26.

Organised by chef Rob Hallas and the director of Leeds events company Jukebox, Rob Chadwick, CrEATe aims to bring together "fancy dining" with a party atmosphere.

The first event will feature a four-course tasting menu and each dish will be made with an alcoholic beverage, served with a drink using the same alcoholic ingredient.

There will be 3D projections, live art and creative visuals as guests tuck into their food.

A playlist of techno and electronic music has been created by Leeds label Catch Recordings for the event.

The first CrEATe event will be hosted at the Chow Down festival site, which has seen bookings fly out for this summer.

Rob Chadwick said: "We have come together to combine music with food and offer a 360 take on our experiences, a night of interactive culinary madness and live art paired with music.

"The ethos is 'food cooked with booze, served with booze' and each dish will be paired with a drink using the same alcoholic ingredient.

"One of the courses is Oyster with Tequila Butter served with a Margarita. The menu is designed to be fun - think fancy food but accessible to somebody who would normally just go out and be happy having steak and chips.

"We will also be combining a playlist for each event with music you would not expect to hear when eating at a 'fine dining' experience."

The event will run from 5pm to 10pm and tickets start at £50 per person.
