English family pub brand "Hungry Horse" has come up with the initiative — dubbed "Gastronaut" — after it was revealed that a traditional British roast was among Tim Peake's favorite meals.
The result is a 120-cm-long, 12-kg-heavy roast containing, 2.5 kg of potatoes, 500g of carrots, 400g of garden peas, 3 kg of cauliflower, 46 Yorkshire puddings, 2.5kg of meat and 1 litre of gravy.
Prudence Staite, the chef and artist that put it together, spent 20 hours working on the dish.
To further salute Peake's return on June 18, the Heron — a Hungry Horse pub in Peake's neighborhood — will offer him and his family a free roast dinner.
"We're big fans of the traditional roast dinner, so after hearing it was also one of Tim's all-time favorite meals, we wanted to commemorate his return to Earth with a gastronomical memento to celebrate his achievements," the Heron's manager Emma Cupit said in a statement.
"I hope Tim is looking forward to enjoying a delicious roast dinner with his family when he returns next week."
But beyond industrial trends, much of this has to do with 44-year-old Peake's popularity.
Peake, who was launched to the ISS in December 2015, is the first person to travel to space under the UK banner since 1991. Throughout these months, Peake's stay has been followed closely by his fellow Britons, excited to see him become the first British person ever to go for a spacewalk, and run a full "space marathon" on a treadmill.
