The original creators
This is a surrealist story of the kind Belgium loves so much. In May 2006, Hakuna Matata, a communication agency specialized in gourmet pleasures, and The Fungroup, a company specialized in amusement park installations deploying cranes, joined forces and made a child’s dream come true: a flying dinner table baptized the Dinner in the Sky which served as the venue for 22 Young European Restaurant Owners to don their white chef’s hat. Over the past years, Dinner in the Sky has criss-crossed the skies of 60 countries… In Europe, to be sure, but also in Australia, Japan, India, Dubaï, South-Africa, Brazil, United States, Mexico, Canada… and China.
Over the time, we have arranged more than 5,000 events in cities ranging from Paris to Las Vegas, as well as in Sydney, Cape Town, Dubai, Bogota or Sao Paulo. All these events were unique, one of a kind. They were incredible dinners, of course. We can cite, for example, the event organized in the skies above Monaco for Prince Albert with France’s most highly ‘starred’ chef, Joel Robuchon, in command. But they also introduced new creative concepts such as a Beach Bar in the Sky, an Opera in the Sky with Lesley Garrett singing at the Tower of London, an Internet Café in the Sky for Nokia in Las Vegas and a PokerMatch in the Sky at the Grand Prix Moto of Jerez.
THE GLITTERING STARS of GASTRONOMY
The most glittering stars of gastronomy took their place behind our stoves: from Pierre Gagnaire to Marc Veyrat, from Heston Blumenthal to Anton Mosimann, from Dani Garcia to Paco Roncero, from Alain Passard to Yannick Alleno,… We flew over the most magical places imaginable: the Strip of Las Vegas, the gardens of the King David Hotel, the Marina of Dubai, the hills of the Villa Borghese, the banks of the St. Lawrence River, the beach of Copacabana and Cape Town bay, to name a few… The world’s leading media showed their interest in the concept: ABC, NBC, TV Globo… the Herald Tribune, Le Monde, the Frankfurter Algemeine… People Magazine, Elle, Forbes… World renowned celebrities took their place at the dinner tables: Prince Albert of Monaco, Hiromi Izawaki, Oscar B. Goodman… The originality of the event’s concept and its effectiveness were recognized via a Globe Award in Boston, the SMB Advisor Award in Dubaï, a Trophée Heavent in Deauville…
