Ralph Lauren, Warner Brothers and Goldman Sachs were among 220 guests at the showcase event.
The Science Museum hosted the event in the backdrop of the ‘Making the Modern World’ gallery, with the Natural History Museum’s evening set in the Earth Hall, and the V&A celebrating its design-lead offering in the Raphael Gallery.
The Science Museum’s caterer Rhubarb had a surprise in store for diners with the arrival of special guest chef Heston Blumenthal, who joined the team in the production of vodka, confit lime and pink peppercorn cured organic salmon with a horseradish granite; and loin of lamb with pea and sweetbread popcorn, followed by an explosion of colourful flavours at the neon pudding stall.
C&IT caught up with celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal to ask him about the secrets of event catering.
The night’s entertainment was provided courtesy of Sternberg Clarke, which included an eight-piece dance troupe disguised as guests, which burst into a flashmob that fused ballet and contemporary dance. At the Natural History Museum, a quartet of break-dancing waiters surprised guests with a hyper kinetic B-Boying routine, while the Science Museum wowed crowds with an energetic performance from LED Hula Girls, Marawa and the Majorettes.
