Mark Hix is a familiar figure on the London art circuit. The chef and restaurateur is a keen art lover; works by Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin adorn his restaurants, and he’s even included a gallery in his latest venture, Tramshed.

Hix has now given a hand to the Delfina Foundation by hosting a fund-raising meal for the organization’s residency program. Seizing the opportunity offered by the foundation’s current multi-disciplinary investigation The Politics of Food, Hix has reinterpreted dishes designed by artists, including Shezad Dawwood’s “diasporically confused curries” and Jane Wilson’s take on Arab sweets.

These were served during an event held at Tramshed earlier this week, which was attended by the likes of philanthropists Princess Alia Al Senussi, Midge Palley, Lekha Poddar and Maria Sukkar.
