The Fat Duck: The Fable Tree - 3 Michelin Stars
Time & Location
About The Event
This year for Christmas we are going to The Fat Duck for their special Christmas menu The Fable Tree.
Nostalgia is a key element that lies at the core of what we do at The Fat Duck. Our role is to help our guests recall their happiest memories. We aim to be the spark that ignites nostalgia. This is the most exciting thing we have ever done.
Through storytelling, we have been able to build human relationships based on the observation and exchange of real emotions. Over the past 25 years, we have taken our guests on a journey through food and emotions, enhancing our understanding of nostalgia. This has allowed us to create new experiences and embrace hardwired human shared beliefs.
This year The Fat Duck will mark the festive period by bringing to life the story of Christmas in a wondrous experience revolving around the focal role played by the Christmas tree. Evolving from the story of Heston’s childhood holiday journey, The Fat Duck will devote the entire experience to a celebration of Christmas and the stories that revolve around it.
Our Fable Tree is a celebration of Christmas, with nostalgia and traditions at its core. We aim to evoke nostalgic memories following the life of a Christmas tree, our deep rooted connection to it and what it symbolises. It is a celebration of the childlike excitement, anticipation and positive memories of the festive period that leads to elevated emotions and human connectivity.
Our story begins in nature where seeds turn into a Christmas tree and we are then transported to our magical Christmas memories where we celebrate with family and friends around the tree. Following the journey of the Christmas tree from the woods into our home, we explore our connectivity with nature, the symbolism of the tree and the emotional connections between friends and family during a special time of the year.
