Heston Blumenthal always has a few culinary tricks up his sleeve, but this Christmas he's seriously pushing the molecular gastronomy boat out!

Heston's three Michelin starred restaurant, The Fat Duck in West Berkshire, is offering a £300 Christmas menu on three Sunday's in December (2nd, 9th and 16th) for a lucky handful of people.

The fabulous feast includes edible fairy lights and tinsel, red Scotch egg baubles, frankincense and myrrh broth, ice cold mulled wine and nitrogen poached meringues made to look like snowballs but taste like pine trees.

WOW!

But what else can we expect from the man who made Willy Wonka-style lickable wallpaper and edible dirt?

The 12 course menu will feature a Christmas tree decorated in edible baubles, savoury ice-lollies (Waldorf Rocket, Salmon Twister and Mulled Wine feast flavour), tasty snow plus a 'partridge and pear' play on the Twelve Days of Christmas.

Heston has revealed that the hardcore menu would take one person ten days to create if they had no help. Luckily he has a whole team on hand to speed things up a bit!

He's even worked with French perfumier, Christophe Laudamiel, to develop the ultimate 'Smell of Christmas' - a mix of apple and cinnamon and pine which will be pumped into the dining room.
