The Lost Train
An imaginary journey by Kid Koala and Fred Morin with real food and music
Most likely that light at the end of a tunnel is a train.
Trains have opened up the frontiers of the unknown and at the same time have absorbed and stored the mythology and exoticism of the places they made accessible to us. Riding a train has for generations been something transformative, neither here nor there, an in-between state but at the same time full of comfort and a sense of belonging. Walt Disney invented Mickey Mouse on a train ride, Edward Hopper claimed that riding a train was “entirely human”, Trollope wrote most of his novels criss-crossing the UK.
Composer/Turntablist Kid Koala and Fred Morin, co-founder of Montreal’s famous restaurant Joe Beef, both discovered their passion for trains. Does time stop when you are on a train? Do you enjoy the journey for the adventure of it or for the otherworldliness and the thrill of train travel? The Lost Train is not really about travel, or about food, or about music – rather, about leaving all of that behind and paying attention to the moment, to the childhood memories and to where a journey might lead you, without it ever ending.
This exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime experience is open to eight people per journey, with only 12 journeys in total. Each journey comes complete with drinks and delicious eats. The Lost Train is an amazing opportunity to have these stars of the music and food scene play and cook for you, as though in your own living room. Your body will be fully fed by these masters of their crafts, while your soul might discover the sweet hunger for places and thoughts you have not travelled to before.
Are you up for an adventure, where what you see is not quite what you observe?
