The Fat Duck

The Fat Duck Restaurant-Heston Blumenthal

A performance of eating

It begins with the setting; a painted abstract of yellow and orange provides a backdrop to the white room, exposed dark wooden beams cross the ceiling, bright autumnal flowers sit on crisp white linen tables with custom cutlery and sleek glassware. Our corner table provides box-like seating of the spectacle about to unfold. A black granite block sits expectantly on the table, a prop in the waiting.

Our food arrives, the performance begins…
