Five-star chefs, five courses and one evening - they all signal the return of the unique pop-up multi-sensory fine dining event, The5, at The5 EventDome in Zurich's Gerold Areal in Switzerland, from 9 November to 18 December 2022.
The5 EventDome 2022: the 5 top chefs
During the dinner experience, in which S.Pellegrino is one of the partners, guests are invited to embark on a unique gourmet journey with a menu curated by five-star chefs - Swiss chefs Silvia Manser, Stefan Wiesner and Patrick Mahler, Italian chef Cristina Bowerman, and German chef René Frank -who will virtually lead diners through each course immersed in a dining room with 360-degree video projections.
Take a look at the experience in the trailer below:
Silvia Manser gives a taste of her home canton of Appenzell Ausserrhoden in Switzerland, creating a first course of butternut squash roll, filled with Toggenburg ricotta served on a bed of sweet and sour pumpkin cubes, with a barley and NESPRESSO coffee-orange dressing.

For the next course, Stefan Wiesner dives into the original world of flavours of Entlebuch’s natural landscape, where an unexpected trio of gingerbread, sous-vide apple and cow sausage - served on apple wood - served as an 'apple tree', complete with apple blossoms collected and salted by Wiesner during the spring.
