In many fairy tales, food plays a magical role and brings everyday wonder to the table.
Inspired by some of our most-loved fairy tales, 'Once Upon a Time' will showcase a culinary wonderland that takes guests on a journey through the huggable bear from Peru's adventures in London, across the dark and mysterious forest that surrounds the Beast's Castle and into the river with the Ugly Duckling as he matures into a majestic Swan - the most beautiful bird of all.
Who we become as adults is largely influenced by the stories we were told and our favourite fairy tales may be one of the most important cultural influences from our childhood. Great stories will suspend our disbelief, provide an escape from reality, and transport us to fantastical worlds.
