Having been awarded two Michelin stars for Dinner at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Knightsbridge, Heston Blumenthal is now planning to expand the concept to former British colonies.
He is considering opening restaurants in India, Australia and the Americas featuring dishes that would have been eaten at the time of the empire in each country.
"The idea is to open up in another country. Like it or not, Britain pillaged the world in the past and had its tentacles in so many other cultures. With respect to the relevant countries, you could reflect that," Blumenthal told the Sunday Times.
"You could have a couple of dishes on there that had some colonial historic connection. Just from a culinary point of view it would be quite interesting."
Before being showcased in any new opening new dishes inspired by Britain's colonial past are likely to feature in Blumenthal's new book, Historic Heston.
The weighty tome will include his signature meat fruit, served at Diner, along with recipes for qualing pudding and mock turtle soup.
