Mark Moriarty, winner of San Pellegrino Young Chef 2015, will be the next guest chef for a three-night pop-up at Hong Kong's Test Kitchen from August 11 to 13.
Test Kitchen's goal is to provide a platform for chefs around the world to share their experiences and showcase their talents. Moriarty's pop-up will celebrate the best of Irish produce over seven courses and will include his signature dish of celeriac marinated in fermented barley and toasted hay before being baked in a salt crust, served with an emulsion of hazelnut and a sauce of raw celery juice. He will also be serving a Royale of foie gras, with sour apple, sweetened walnuts and smoked eel, as well as pigeon with turnip cooked in ponzu and cabbage.
Discussing Moriarty's pop-up, Vincent Mui, founder of Test Kitchen, said: "Mark is one of the most exciting young chefs around and we’re honored to have him cooking in Hong Kong. We’re most grateful to our partners at San Pellegrino who have helped make this pop-up happen; one we know will resonate with Hong Kong gourmands and be sure to sell out quickly."
While Moriarty added: "I’m delighted to be coming to Hong Kong to cook at Test Kitchen. I am also honoured to be able to bring two of Ireland’s most celebrated chefs to cook with me. Mickael Viljanen and Graham Neville will collaborate with me on a menu that showcases the best of modern Irish cuisine."
