Later this year the classic DoubleTree by Hilton Chocolate Chip Cookie will become the first food to be baked aboard the International Space Station (ISS). To celebrate this they have launched a space-themed cook book and will use the recipes in it for a special three course dinner available later this month.

From 30 September to 3 October 2019 between 6.00- 8.00pm you can try dishes from a special menu which includes Slow Cooked Chilli Beef Croquettes, Duck Breast and chevre salad and Apple and Irish Cream Crumble. Cookie meals are available for £25 per person.

The cookie will be baked on board ISS in a prototype oven which has been designed to make long term stays in space a bit more hospitable.

Shawn McAteer, Senior Vice President and Global Head of DoubleTree by Hilton said: “The DoubleTree Cookie is a favorite for our guests in the UK, and around the world and we are incredibly excited to serve our limited-edition Cookie meals to celebrate the landmark experiment aboard the International Space Station.”

“Hilton has long been an industry innovator, and as we celebrate our 100th year, we’re excited to send our hospitality into orbit with not just our plans to bake the first ever food in space, but also bring our guests and customers a three-course dinner that is truly out-of-this-world in Edinburgh!”

The Cookie Dinners will be available at DoubleTree by Hilton Edinburgh City Centre. To book your spot to enjoy the Cookie inspired three-course dinner, head to DoubleTreebyHiltonCookieDinners@Grayling.com  – spaces are limited!
