The idea of popping down to a London society often sounds fun, but many can be rather off-putting for those who aren’t hardcore Marxists or worryingly obsessed with the barley content in real ale.
Step forward Bobo Social. The Charlotte Street burger joint are re-launching their Experimental Burger Society, which takes something of a scientific look at the humble patty.
For £35, customers will spend an evening with the Bobo head chef in the restaurant’s very own laboratory.
If this all sounds a bit formal, we’re assured no previous qualifications in burger-making are necessary, and there are plenty of cocktails on tap (sadly not included in the price).
After a starter of wine and meat tasting, kangaroo, zebra, alligator, venison and ostrich meats are all brought out for budding burger scientists to experiment with.
Traditionalists can tuck into Bobo's beef.
Sadly, the society has no secret handshakes or impressive membership cards, but that didn't put off London Live’s Dan Freedman, who went to the Fitzrovia laboratory to find his ideal blend of exotic meats and spices.
If things didn't go exactly to plan, that's only because to err is cumin.
