Kaiseki websiteAfter a successful season of the experimental dinners ‘Kaiseki by Kitchen Theory’ the dining experiences was hosted in June 2014 at Maida Hill Place for a final run over the summer. Kaiseki by Kitchen Theory had been running a sell out series at the House of Wolf since February 2014. Brainchild of Kitchen Theory’s Chef Patron Jozef Youssef and Author of Molecular Gastronomy at Home, the multi-sensory event infused art, an exceptional 9-course Japanese inspired menu and personalised service to provide a journey of duality through our interpretation of Japan.

The artistic direction was in collaboration with talented artist, calligrapher and director Aerosyn-Lex Mestovic ,who works with the likes of Kanye West and Kenzo, to showcase his works of art and film.  The evening commences with a screening of Aerosyn-Lex’s directorial début short film titled SCRIPTURA VITAE which was commissioned by Channel 4 and Protein London as part of the Random Acts platform. A poetic performance piece exploring duality,the film served as the opening act and the inspiration of the multi-course experimental dinner to follow. We had drawn on the philosophical, cultural, artistic and multi-sensory elements of Kaiseki, an esteemed multi-course Japanese dining tradition, as our framework while tying in our more western and modernist culinary experience to create a fusion experimental experience. Keeping in theme of Kaiseki, our menu comprises of mainly seasonal produce.
