Into The Wild is a conceptual dinner by Anne Duk Hee Jordan in collaboration with the „Herbarium Leipzig“, in the framework of the Berlin Food Art Week 2017.

Into The Wild presents a table of long forgotten herbs, edible fragrance flowers, and ancient root knots. The visitors are invited to take part in an enjoyable adventure of their own perception and to consume in direct access to the presented fruits. The dinner table becomes a lavish heterotopy. 

The protagonists of this social food experience are 7 forgotten herbs which Jordan transforms into an edible sculpture and accompanying dishes served at the table.

The experience refers to crops which were in the past offered in local markets, and have nowadays almost disappeared. Gradually, the „old“ returns. Such as The Night Candle, originating from North America, which used to be one of the most important medicinal plants. In the 16th century, it was brought to Europe as an ornamental plant and cultivated in gardens, before people learned to use the potential of the plant as a vegetable.
