The alternative Xmas do!

‘Mexico’ Experimental multi-sensory dinner and cocktails. 

London’s top experimental kitchen is offering an alternative twist on your office party. ‘México’, a multi-sensory dining event!

Hosted by Kitchen Theory, Mexico combines a mouth-watering tasting menu, delectable mezcal cocktails, wine pairing and sensory enhancements to awaken all of your senses.

The gastro-neophiles were behind ‘Synaesthesia’ the hit sensory dining experience which the New Yorker described as "More than a gastronomic gimmick, these meals illuminate a key truth about the mind: the senses do not work in isolation but in concert."

The tantalisingly delicious and memorable ‘México by Kitchen Theory’ experience has been curated as a fun, educational and immersive dinner working to dispel the myths that Mexican food is all about meat, chillies and guacamole.

Mexico is one of the most mega-diverse countries on the planet. It is home to over 10 percent of the world’s biodiversity. ‘México by Kitchen Theory’ is a celebration of this culinary colour. Londoners can now taste the thrill of the country’s flavours.

Kitchen Theory Chef Patron Jozef Youssef developed the experience with Professor Charles Spence, head of Oxford University’s Experimental PsychologyDepartment, as well as the Mexican Embassy and Mexican Ambassador H.E. Diego Gomez Pickering.

The result is an experience to excite all the senses. It is an event of storytelling, aroma, visuals, mezcal-based cocktails and a delectable menu cooked by Michelin experienced chefs.

Brave guests can even opt to taste the culinary delicacy that is insects! A sustainable food option that can boost nutrition, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation. Kitchen Theory will promote the cause and subtly incorporate insects to enhance the flavours of a few dishes for those who opt in. 

Chef Youssef says:

 “What we have in store for our guests is a well-rounded and a complete evening of spectacular food, drink, sensory entertainment and storytelling in a refined modernist interpretation of Mexican ingredients and gastronomy. We want to enlighten our guests as to what modern day Mexico signifies; its’ cuisine, art and the rich cultural culinary history”.

Guests can join Kitchen Theory’s public events on weekends or book a private event for groups of up to 18 guests.

Kitchen Theory is in residency at Maida hill Place W9 3ET. The ‘Mexico’ dinner series launched on 1 October 2015 and will run every weekend until the end of December.
