A boundary-breaking genius with three Michelin stars and an imagination unparalleled in the world of food, Heston is here with stories, insights and hacks to transform the way you cook.

It’s time to get in the kitchen and have an adventure…

For more than twenty-five years, Heston Blumenthal’s unique approach to cooking has injected creativity, playfulness and experimentation into the world of British gastronomy. From egg and bacon ice cream to cricket ketchup, dishes that come with their own soundtracks to wine made in a centrifuge in his laboratory, Heston fuses art and science to subvert our expectations and dazzle our senses.

In celebration of Is this a Cookbook?, an illustrated collection of his most accessible recipes yet, Heston joins us live on-stage for a wide-roaming exploration of his life and kitchen philosophy. It’s your chance to delve inside the mind of the most creative and celebrated chef the British isles have ever produced. How do you make popcorn chicken — with real popcorn? What is Heston’s advice for making dinner party dishes that will blow your guests away? What’s the secret of his extraordinary culinary creativity?

Find out the answers to all of these and more in this unmissable event.
