A dinner date with Heston

rsz_hestonAs one of the world’s most celebrated chefs, when word got out Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck was temporarily relocating to Melbourne’s Crown Hotel, a frenzy ensued, according to Denizen magazine.

Currently the pride of Bray (a quaint village west of London) the legendary restaurant is set to shut up shop for six months while Blumenthal and his team showcase their culinary brilliance down-under. But rest assured this is no pop-up. After its six-month residence the site will be re-named ‘Dinner, by Heston Blumenthal’ and the reigns handed over to executive head chef, Ashley Palmer-Watts before Heston and the team migrate home to England.

Meanwhile, for those looking to witness the original Fat Duck menu in all its innovative brilliance, cooked by the great man himself, you’ll need a little help from lady luck to secure a table. With a limited number of seats available, hopefuls for the hotly anticipated date with dining destiny, must enter an online ballot which opens at 9am (Melbourne time) Wednesday, 8th of October and closes at midnight on Sunday the 26th. Chosen at random, successful diners will revel in a four-hour, boundary-bending feast invoking history, nostalgia, emotion and memory for a meagre outlay of AU$525 per person. Also available for a price is a once in a lifetime four-person in-kitchen chef’s table experience with the multi-sensory cooking pioneer.
