Aiden Byrne

Join Aiden Bryne; one of Britain’s most respected and acclaimed Michelin star chefs and the man behind Restaurant MCR and The Church Green in Lymm, and his crew of culinary rocketeers for a stratospheric seven-course menu designed especially for bluedot festival. Taking you on space odyssey, navigating an entire cosmos of experimental tastes, which are truly out of this world.

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 cosmos.

The dinners* held over Friday and Saturday evening will see gastronauts dine in a specially commissioned pop up restaurant in the shadow of the Lovell Telescope.

Speaking about his menu, Aiden Byrne said: “Normally when I’m asked to create a menu for a special occasion, such as this, it’s not rocket science – well this actually is! I’ve loved researching the history of space travel and man’s obsession with finding new galaxies, stars and planets – I wanted our guests to experience a little of that and feel the g’s through interesting ingredients and food pairings.”
