The Anthropocene Feast : Eating The Last Dragon (Cesis, 2017)

The Anthropocene Feast was a food experiment about eating the last dragon on planet Earth. This extraordinary event took place in Cesis Medieval Castle, Latvia in August 2017 and was organized to celebrate and reflect on eating in the Anthropocene – the new geological epoch. In case of mammoths our ancestors might not have known at the time that we were eating the last ones of their kind. But how would it taste, if you knew it was the last? To serve the Anthropocene Feast, the last dragon on earth was caught, slaughtered, cooked and served for public. This time we knew it was the last of its species. With the growth of global population and our impact on the ecological processes, it’s clear that most of the species currently living on the Earth, will not survive the Anthropocene.
