Test Kitchen announces January pop-up
Chef Gal Ben-Moshe from Berlin’s acclaimed Glass restaurant will host a four night pop-up in collaboration with Hong Kong’s experimental dining group, Test Kitchen next month.
Gal Ben-Moshe’s 10-course tasting menu draws on his experiences working at the three-Michelin starred Alinea in Chicago, Claude Bosi’s Hibiscus and Jason Atherton’s Maze in London.
The Israeli chef born in 1985 heads up the kitchen at Glass in Berlin which taps into various regional dishes across the Eastern Mediterranean, and from 12-15 January, he will bring a contemporary version of “a historically neglected kitchen,” using traditional recipes from various Arabic countries, including Lebanon, Syria and Palestine.
Hong Kong’s wine merchants, Corney & Barrow will again look after the wine list which includes an Aligote from Domaine Francois Carillon in Puligny-Montrachet paired with roast carrots with cumin, hearts of palm, carrots custard, and prunes, and the Rhone-style Syrah/Viognier blend from Rencanati winery in Israel teamed up with herb-roasted saddle of lamb, with sheep yogurt, roasted eggplant, cumin and stuffed vegetables.
The pop-up will run from 12-15 January with two seatings at 7pm and 8.15pm and costs HK$1,280 per person.
