A futuristic feast is on offer this summer at the brand new bluedot festival at Jodrell Bank, 22-24 July.
Joining a galaxy of stars from across music, the arts and science is Manchester food legend and the youngest chef ever to win a Michelin Star – Aiden Byrne.
Aiden’s bespoke Restaurant at the End of the Universe is located beneath the MKII radio telescope affording incredible views of Brian Eno’s Lovell Telescope installation.
The genius behind Manchester House and The Church Green in Lymm, Aiden and his crew of culinary rocketeers are on a mission to deliver a stratospheric seven-course menu designed especially for the festival.
Inspired by intergalactic travel and exploration, the chef has taken his cues from astronomy, the cosmos and futurism. The galactic banquet menu features some of earth’s most luxurious ingredients as well as molecular interventions taken directly from the universe.
These banquets will be held on Friday evening and Saturday lunch and dinnertime and will see gastronauts dine in a specially commissioned pop-up restaurant in the shadow of the iconic Lovell Telescope.
Gourmands with a penchant for midnight munchies will be particularly interested in the nightly Stargazers Feast. Nightbirds can stay up late and dive into a specially curated space-age smorgasbord featuring a wide range of delicious sharing delights once the main-sage excitement draws to a close.
