Fire & Water is a five course Pakistani Feast showcasing the nature of summer.

The Empress Market supper club, is about the contradictory elements that shape Pakistani food and culture.

The five course dinner reflects on a typical desi summer, playing with fiery heat and cooling water in each dish.

The tasting menus are interwoven with spoken word performances and talks centring on Pakistani culture and global migration, to create a truly immersive experience.

Fire and Water. Hot and Cold. Love and War. Scorching sunshine and torrential rain. At once beautiful and exciting but also a place of turbulence. This is Pakistan.
