This enthralling evening will focus on Heston’s unique philosophy and approach to cooking, exploring taste and flavour, and his passion for the multi-sensory experience of eating and drinking.

The chef of the three Michelin starred Fat Duck Restaurant in the UK and star of Heston’s Feasts and the Mission Impossible TV series will demonstrate his philosophies through live scientific experiments on stage.

Grilled by host Mike Hosking, Heston will take us on a journey from humble beginnings to the creation of iconic dishes such as ‘The Sound of the Sea’ with edible sand, logic defying Hot and Iced Tea, his famous Snail Porridge and the epic Mock Turtle Soup that takes three days to make.

Get the inside story on Heston’s incredibly moist Christmas puddings with a candied Valencia orange inside which were so popular they sold out in the UK’s Waitrose supermarkets in moments with bidding wars on ebay. As it cooks, the essential oils from the orange peel infuse the pudding from the inside out. Now Heston has created a minced pie that promises to make the house smell like a Christmas tree.

Join Heston on a journey searching the archives at Hampton Court for historic British recipes which inspired the creation of new dishes for ‘Dinner by Heston Blumenthal’ in Knightsbridge, which has just been be awarded its first Michelin star after only nine months in operation.
