About Dinner by Heston Blumenthal

Inspired by Heston Blumenthal’s fascination with historic gastronomy, Dinner is one of the world’s most celebrated restaurants. First conceived in the late 1990s, the idea for Dinner sprung from Heston’s fascination with the savoury ice creams of the late 1800s, the theatre of the Tudor dining experience and the dishes featured in Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Through his research, Heston realised that obsession with food is no modern-day phenomena. He worked with food historians and the team at Hampton Court Palace, as well as reading cookbooks such as those by the royal chefs of King Richard II. The result is Dinner’s thrilling menu, which perfectly fuses the historic with the contemporary in a uniquely exciting manner.
