In 2000 London based Tom Wolfe pioneered the fusion of food with art and product design. His imagination and mastery of the avant garde as well as deep expertise of world cuisines attracted a diverse client base, from luxury brands to celebrities, which led to Tom becoming the creative industries’ “go to” chef. He set a global benchmark for experiential catering from Moscow to Hong Kong. Adding a touch of theatrical to every event, he merges food with performance art, resulting in a two-in-one experience delighting a multitude of senses, serving up unique food as well as extraordinary entertainment for the night.
Tom Wolfe creates installations for Frieze and takes his food art all over the world, from Kazakhstan to Dubai. A creator of Food Fashion Show, where models walk off the runway wearing Tom’s contemporary, wearable trays serving his food art canapés, Wolfe has been showcasing his edible designs in trend-conscious capitals like Moscow and Beirut. His inventions extend to Food Art Installations such as ‘Inside the Cake’ and luxury piñatas where high-end watches and hand painted Faberge eggs fall out instead of candy.
In New York, Wolfe studied art at Parson’s and later at the French Culinary Institute in Soho. He then trained and worked at the most exclusive hotels in China, Singapore and experienced working at other exotic destinations like the Caribbean. However, it’s not only Tom’s travels that influenced his food art. Wolfe attempts to largely work with local, ethical and organic ingredients, thus his popularity with such vegan/raw movement enthusiasts as Madonna and Stella McCartney.
