A WACKY restaurateur has achieved his lifelong ambition – by becoming the first man to blast a kebab into space.

Pascal Leuthold attached his beloved wrap Kofta to a weather balloon and watched as it zoomed 124,000ft in the air, without so much as an onion falling out of place.

Top of the world: this is the first ever kebab to blast into space
The barmy chef, who runs the AYVERDIS chain restaurant in Zurich, Switzerland, filmed his kebab’s space mission.

Cruising up to the very crest of the earth’s curvature, it witnesses some stunning views of the void above, before crashing back down to earth and completing its epic two-hour voyage.

Pascal, who masterminded the Apollo-AYVERDIS mission, said:

“Our new restaurant that we just opened in Wiedikon resembles a rocket, so we thought what better way to announce our new chain to the world, than launching one of our kebabs into space.”

“One of the most impressive things was to watch the Kebab freeze.

“We didn’t think about this before, but of course at this height it’s very cold and the whole kebab was frozen solid.”

According to Pascal, a lot of planning went into Apollo-AYVERDIS, which saw the world’s first ever kebab launched into space.

He added:

“We are all very proud that we actually managed to pull this off – it took about three months to plan and film.

“What started as a bit of a joke actually turned into a really impressive event for us all.

“Everyone has been commenting great things – we’ve have many great ideas planned and all of them of course will be centered around our kebabs.

“It feels very cool to have launched the first kebab into space”
