The Charanga del Norte cocktail
18:30-19:30, The digital dinner party Friday 19 June 2020

Join food historian and artist Tasha Marks for a unique taste of the British Academy Summer Showcase. Inspired by the work of three British Academy researchers, this cook-along and conversation is sure to be food for thought. The pairings start with a cocktail, influenced by Sue Miller’s work on Latin music. Do have fun making your own cocktail after Tasha’s demonstration and check out our new album ‘Pachanga Time’ to dance with too (released the same day) – shimmy around your back garden or living room to our music to literally raise your spirits – now you can listen and drink us at the same time!
