Award-winning Chef Kwame Onwuachi, whose acclaimed book Notes from a Young Black Chef will be adapted into a film this year, will pop-up for three nights at Hong Kong’s Test Kitchen. From 16 – 18 October, guests will be dazzled by the cuisine of “the most important chef in America,” according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
The eight-course menu will feature new dishes by the inimitable Chef Kwame, including Octopus with Veracruz compote, scallop masa and puffed amaranth, as well as Moi Moi Chawanmushi – black-eyed pea custard, uni and confit chicken. Each dish will celebrate the young chef’s diverse heritage, incorporating the flavours of his childhood which was spread between Nigeria, New York and Louisiana.
“I’m delighted to welcome my good friend Kwame to Hong Kong,” says Test Kitchen Founder Vincent Mui. “I met Kwame at the Culinary Institute of America and have watched him rise in the culinary world. Having cut his teeth at some of the world’s best fine dining restaurants, including Eleven Madison Park and Per Se in New York, I’m so pleased to see him make his mark with his own concepts, and can’t wait for him to bring his unique style of cooking to Hong Kong.”
The eight-course menu is available for $1480 per person with an optional wine pairing at $480 per person. Each guest will receive a copy of Notes from a Young Black Chef.
