The restaurant will offer contemporary dishes inspired by historic gastronomic recipes dating back to the 1300’s.
“The idea behind ‘Dinner’ stems from Heston Blumenthal’s fascination with history and gastronomy, which was triggered in the late 90’s after reading a 15-century manuscript known as The Vivendier. The book spoke of a dining experience full of playfulness and theatre, as well as intriguing ingredients and recipes. What started as an exercise in curiosity triggered almost 20 years of research and discovery, with historic inspired dishes appearing on the menu of The Fat Duck in Bray, United Kingdom. When the opportunity arose to open a restaurant in London the idea of ‘Dinner’ began to emerge and in January 2011 ‘Dinner by Heston Blumenthal’ opened its doors under the leadership of Chef Director Ashley Palmer-Watts. The two chefs created a menu inspired by the tastes and flavours of Britain, from the farmers’ table to the royal courts of England. ‘Dinner’ offers highly modern dishes inspired by a gastronomic insight from Medieval (c.1300) to Victorian (c.1800). The Restaurant achieved great recognition including 2 Michelin stars in 2012, a rare accolade for an establishment of this size. Almost five years later a second ‘Dinner,’ Melbourne opened and has won a stream of accolades in Australia.”
We’re excited to see the opening on this restaurant, Debbie has been inspired, thrilled and sometimes extremely puzzled by Heston’s cuisine – as watched on TV, and not as yet experienced.
Have you dined at any of Heston’s restaurants?
