Commission based projects are welcomed by Miss Ellie's of Coventry and form part of her ever growing portfolio. Below are some commissions from 2017 and 2018.
Edible Irish Stories
In March 2018 Miss Ellie's was commissioned to stage an interactive food performance as part of Theatre Absolutes first Shop front Festival.
Edible Irish stories was a food and theatre piece celebrating and learning about Irish food cultures and heritage.
Participants were invited to knead, laugh, learn, dance and of course, eat.

The Wonders of the Moon
Collaborating with the Festival of Imagineers and The Museum of the Moon the BBC filmed part of their documentary (to be released in 2018) "Wonders of the Moon" at Coventry Cathedral.
Miss Ellie's was commissioned to provide a bespoke catering table of an edible solar system and a moon cake - an edible replica of the real thing.
Coventry City of Culture Bid 2021 Bread Workshop
As part of the successful bid for City of Culture 2021 Miss Ellie's was invited as a guest artist to work alongside Talking Birds, Fanny France and Carmen Wong with 'The Cart' from Talking Birds at St Peter's, Hillfileds. The workshop was aimed at working amongst community members to generate ideas for the Bid with a focus on food and community.
Jo Hunter from national arts organisation '64 Million Artists' provides an excellent account of the day in this Blog post https://coventry2021.co.uk/parathas-confidence-gets-ideas/
Nightmares and Nibbles
Successful company Vortex Creates 'provides high quality innovative design and production that gives people experiences they'll never forget' and this Halloween was no exception with Miss Ellie's commissioned to provide the food for a fully immersive experience.
With the event going on tour in 2018 the food has to kept under wraps for now but the video certainly gives a real 'flavour' for the event.
