The launch of Cookie Cookbook 3.0 coincides with the announcement that DoubleTree by Hilton will be taking its iconic warm welcome to new heights when its Chocolate Chip Cookie is launched in a rocket bound for the International Space Station (ISS). The cookie will then become the first food baked in space inside a prototype oven designed to make long-duration space flight more hospitable.


Shawn McAteer, Senior Vice President and Global Head of DoubleTree by Hilton said: “The DoubleTree Cookie is a favourite for our guests in the UK, and around the world and we are incredibly excited to serve our limited-edition Cookie meals to celebrate the landmark experiment aboard the International Space Station.”

“Hilton has long been an industry innovator, and as we celebrate our 100th year, we’re excited to send our hospitality into orbit with not just our plans to bake the first ever food in space, but also bring our guests and customers a three-course dinner that is truly out-of-this-world in Edinburgh!”
