Pushing the boundaries of dinner parties, with a twist of kink

Spiral Theory Test Kitchen has created a name for itself by devising over-the-top, bacchanalian dinner parties that double as interactive art installations—sometimes with heavy nods to BDSM (think: edible ball gags). But more importantly, the queer trio running the year-old collective takes pride in pushing the boundaries of food combinations and textures, all while assuring that their events are as inclusive as possible. “Definitions of sex in culture are far too narrow,” co-founder Quori Theodor tells Eater. “Instead of the food being sexy, it’s more like, how can we reframe our larger sense of relating and intimacy, of the body, of difference and connection?”
