The Fat Duck is marking its 30th birthday with a year-long celebration of what it has described as ‘the best of the Duck’.

The three Michelin-star restaurant has created two menus - the 11-course The Journey and the shorter The Trip - which will feature some of owner Heston Blumenthal’s ‘most iconic gastronomic modern classics’.

Dishes will include some that the restaurant describes as being ‘legendary but little-seen because of their complexity’, such as the nitro-poached aperitif; aerated beetroot; breakfast in a bowl; Sound of the Sea; crab ice cream; jelly of quail; bread and butter; and beef royale.

Desserts include Counting Sheep; and ‘Like a Kid in a Sweet Shop’.

In an email to customers the restaurant said: “The chefs are inspired, the front of house is excited, and we want you to join us on a journey into Hestonland – a place full of exceptional cooking, extraordinary flavours and excitingly, deliciously different dishes from the foremost gastronomic magician.”

The menus will start at £275 per person.

The Fat Duck was opened by Blumenthal in 1995 and won its first star four years later. It was awarded a second star in 2002 and its third in 2004, becoming one of only a handful of UK restaurants to hold the accolade.

In 2005, the World’s 50 Best Restaurants named The Fat Duck the Best Restaurant in the World.

Earlier this year the restaurant launched a backwards version​ of its tasting menu that started with desserts and concluded with savoury dishes.
