London’s most multisensory chef’s table has arrived.

How do colour, aroma, texture and even sound affect how you experience flavour? And do we all experience flavour in the same way?  Do certain foods taste sweeter while stroking velvet? Will ‘sonic seasoning’ one day replace the salt cellar? If you can’t smell a meal, what happens to your experience of flavour? The emerging science of ‘gastrophysics’ looks to answer all these questions and more.

Our Gastrophysics Chef’s Table will take ten guests on a memorable 13 course multisensory dining experience hosted by Chef Jozef Youssef and the Kitchen Theory chefs.

A sneak peek…

The Gastrophysics Experience

This is an immersive and intimate experience giving a first-hand insight into the creative process of a chef and his team. At the Gastrophysics Chef’s Table, 10 guests will spend 3 to 4 hours with Chef Youssef and the team as we lead you through a flavour and multisensory journey. We open the chefs table to the public on the last Friday and Saturday of each month. Private bookings can be made at any time for 8-10 guests, contact us to book.

The experience includes private access to our Studio: home to the first projection mapped Chef’s Table in London, with its minimalist open kitchen, gallery, screening room and study. Join us to see the chefs at work as the experience unfolds with the aid of lighting, colour, sound, aroma and textures.

A fun, educational and multisensory experience in the world of gastronomy and gastrophysics.

The Gastrophysics Menu

Our menu explores a fusion of flavours, textures, and culinary techniques, drawing inspiration from Chef Jozef’s experience in some of London’s top Michelin Star restaurants as well as his travels across the world.

Each of the thirteen small courses are conceptually designed based on a mix of science and art, yet at their core these dishes are simply delicious flavours married with a mix of traditional and modernist culinary techniques and served with beautiful wines and exciting cocktails. See a sample menu below.

The Space

Hosted in our new design studio, located on the top floor of an old Victorian factory in High Barnet (North London.) The Kitchen Theory design studio is made up of; the gallery – which features highlights of our work from past years, the study– which houses our growing gastronomic literature collection, the kitchen – this is where we experiment with new ideas and culinary concepts, and finally our Odyssey Chef’s Table – a ten seat dining table mapped with projections and nestled right by the open kitchen.

Booking the Gastrophysics Chef’s Table the whole Studio is reserved privately for you and your guests for the entire evening (until 11pm).
