Follow in the footsteps of Bradley Cooper in the film Burnt and cook up a culinary feast that’s sure to impress your nearest and dearest

In Burnt, Bradley Cooper plays a two-star Michelin chef named Adam Jones, who has only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. In the movie, he sets out to land his own kitchen and that elusive third Michelin star with the best of the best on his side.

A night of tantalising, movie-inspired recipes

Kick off your movie night with a creatively crafted cheese board featuring aged Havarti, saga blue Brie and traditional Danish blue from Castello cheese. Perfect your plate with gourmet pairings such as honeycomb, apricots, mixed olives and slices of grilled baguette. Use your cheese board to create a decadent crostini appetiser by layering cheese, fruit and honey atop a slice of bread.

To truly unlock your inner chef, start with a main course that brings Burnt to life on your plate through Sweeney’s simply satisfying cacio e pepe. This delightful spaghetti dish features a garlic butter sauce and aged Havarti cheese, which marries a rich buttery aroma with a creamy, melty texture.

Your evening’s grand finale is an indulgent dessert of chocolate mousse with Danish blue cheese and mango. Traditional Danish blue is a cheese with a nutty aroma and hints of marzipan.
