Momofuku chef prepares shrimp & grits for astronaut Chris Hadfield


Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, most known for Mythbusters, today released an episode of Tested where they asked Momofuku founder and chef David Chang to prepare a gourmet dish for celebrity astronaut Chris Hadfield.

So how did it go? Well, although Hadfield liked the “Space Shrimp & Grits” recipe, the Canadian astronaut couldn’t combine ingredients from different packets because the food would float due to the effects of gravity.

“It’s virtually impossible to make here in space,” said Hadfield.

Watch the entire episode in the video above.

Hadfield this past week became an Internet sensation with his beautiful rendition of “Space Oddity,” originally performed by David Bowie. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the brilliant music video, below.
