We observed and interviewed chefs, then conducted design experiments to explore the design of aesthetic interactions and social experiences around food supported by robotic technologies.  These experiments existing work in haute cuisine and plating with the vision that robots can become a tool and even an extension of the chef. We fi nd further inspiration in theories and techniques from the fields of art, architecture and theatre to sketch the design space for robot food experiences drawing attention to those which can only be executed with the help of robots. In the research paper submitted to the Cultural Robotics workshop at Ro-Man2015, we present lessons learned from the design experiments and discuss important future work to develop aesthetic food interactions supported by human-robot teams.
