The Hind's Head Bray Fat Duck Eating the Years Menu duck

Can you believe The Fat Duck is 25 years old? Heston’s Willy Wonka factory of haute cuisine launched in 1995 and a quarter of a century and three Michelin stars later, it continues to wow diners with its mind-blowing dishes. To celebrate its evolution, and influence on modern dining today, Heston’s Michelin starred gastropub The Hind’s Head has delved into the Fat Duck’s history books to give three of Heston’s old school classics culinary CPR.

THE HIND'S HEAD FAT DUCK EATING THE YEARS Pineapple and crab oil millefueille
