Overview

As part of Samsung’s Galaxy 10 launch campaign the ‘Space Selfie’ in collaboration with super model Cara Delevingne. Kitchen Theory was tasked with developing a range of themed canapes and cocktails for the official ‘Space Selfie’ event hosted at Samsung’s flagship Coal Yard Drops, King’s Cross experience store in London.

Challenge

To develop and serve a range of space themed canapes and cocktails for 300 guests.

Development

After extensive research into the history of foods in various international space programs, a look at future space foods and taking influence from South Korean flavours and dishes (as a nod to Samsung’s South Korean home) we designed a series of canapes that reflected Samsung’s innovative spirit and were in keeping with the space theme. The cocktails were a selection of space age cocktails served in bubbles, frozen in liquid nitrogen shots, and in space age pouches. The cocktails were designed with showmanship in mind intent to create a lively bar feel within the space.
