For the eighth edition of Priceless Soupers Season 5, celebrate Magnum Photos’ 70th anniversary at a unique photo-culinary evening in Paris. “Say Cheese!” as master of ceremonies, chef Ellen Parr, who trained at the Moro in London, transforms iconic photographs by her father, Martin Parr (guest star for the evening), into lavish dishes. Head over to the Butte-aux-Cailles neighborhood for an optical illusion of a menu, and immerse yourselves in a Union Jack-themed pop-up apartment decorated by set designer Alice Hodge. As Ellen Parr’s partner in crime at The Art of Dining, Alice will give life to the British food immortalized by Martin and hung on the walls, providing the opportunity to eat a photograph.

For the last seventeen years, le Fooding has been electrifying the taste of the times with its best-selling restaurant guide (lefooding.com) and culinary celebrations in Paris, New York, Los Angeles and Milan… Immune to trends, constantly seeking out the most stylish restaurants, and driven by insatiable appetite for novelty and authenticity, “le Fooding is to cooking what the New Wave was to French cinema”, according to The New Yorker.
