Smeg reaches for the sky

Appliance manufacturer Smeg has teamed up with open-air, pop-up restaurant London in the Sky.

Smeg reaches for the sky

The company is a brand partner with London in the Sky and is supplying the pop-up restaurant and its Michelin-starred chefs with a variety of cookers and fridge-freezers, to help them recreate their signature menus and dining experiences in the sky over the capital.

The chosen products include three FQ55FX fridge-freezers, two of the brand’s retro-style FAB fridge-freezers in black and an A1PYID-7 Opera ranger cooker, which features an induction hob.

The restaurant seats 22 guests, who are securely fastened in before the platform raises 100 feet into the air and the gourmet experience begins, with the food prepared and served in front of diners at the centre of the table. Guests can dine in the sky for breakfast, lunch or for dinner.

John Davies, brand manager at Smeg UK, said: “Being an Italian brand, one of Smeg’s biggest passions is for good food, and with the impressive line-up of Michelin-starred chefs, that’s what London in the Sky is all about.

“When we first heard about a pop-up restaurant in the sky we felt this was such an exciting concept and couldn’t wait to be a part of it. We love teaming up with other innovative brands to do inventive new things and felt like this was an opportunity to be part of something special. We hope the expert team of chefs enjoy using the Smeg appliances to create culinary masterpieces in the sky.”

London in the Sky is taking place at Canary Wharf until September 21. For more information and to buy tickets, please visit
