Three Celebrity Chefs To Visit Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex During "Taste of Space" Event

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex has added a brand-new star-studded chef demo and dinner event to the roster of activities as part of Taste of Space. The all-new event, Taste of Space: Celebrity Edition, features acclaimed chefs Rocco DiSpirito, Duff Goldman and Marc Murphy, who will be cooking up something special on the evening of Nov. 4, 2022.

Taste of Space: Celebrity Edition will feature celebrity chefs DiSpirito, Goldman, and Murphy demonstrating their expert cooking techniques alongside veteran astronauts Bruce Melnick, Scott Altman and Sandra Magnus, on the main floor of Gateway: The Deep Space Launch Complex, the newest attraction at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.

While guests watch the demo, they can mingle among cutting-edge space exploration innovations and see the visionary designs that are paving the way for human deep space travel. Throughout, guests will be served samples of the delectable dishes, followed by the reveal of an out-of-this-world cake designed by master baker Duff Goldman. Between bites, astronauts will be available for photo opportunities. Tickets for this event are $175 per person.

Gourmands seeking a bit more flavor can take advantage of a very limited number of tickets available for an exclusive meal that will follow the chef demo. The two-hour, multi-course dinner will feature a menu designed by DiSpirito, Goldman and Murphy and will take place on the second floor of Gateway inside the flight terminal of Spaceport KSC. Personal visits to each table will be made by the celebrity chefs and astronauts in attendance. Ending the meal with a treat sweeter than most desserts, guests will be able to mingle and take photos with DiSpirito, Goldman, and Murphy.

Tickets are $499 per person and include both the chef demo and sit-down dinner events. For additional information and to purchase tickets, be sure to visit
