The pieces La langue éteinte (langue meaning both language and tongue, similar to mother tongue) and Boiled Iceberg Lettuce with Sichuan Pepper Sauce were both part of a series of edible sculptures comprising the dinner/exhibition Forgabt [] (which in Danish sounds very similar to fortabt [being lost]). People having tried the spicy Sichuan cuisine will recall the flavourfull pepper that cause a prickling sensation and in large doses completely numbs the tongue.
