Andy Warhol once said: "No matter what changes or how fast, the one thing we all always need is real good food so we can know what the changes are and how fast they’re coming."
We're inclined to agree, and what better way to embrace Warhol's philosophy than the Andy Warhol inspired dinner at Whitworth Art Gallery.
This event was organised by Modern Caterer and set in the gallery's stunning glass-walled restaurant Cafe in the Trees, the three-course meal was inspired by the work of the artist, which diners could see in the major new exhibition of Warhol’s work at the Whitworth
