Global Feast was timed to represent the cuisine of one country, every night, for the duration of the Olympics. Guess who was representing Japan? Collaborating with Architects – Atmos Studios and Kirsty of Ms. Marmite Lover fame, I produced a special menu for the night based on lesser known Japanese dishes. The dinner was based around a truly ambitious laser-cut table that filled the venue just next to the Olympic park in Stratford.
On the night of the Japanese pop-up, my menu was accompanied by dancers from Japan, who had everyone up and dancing to Bon style dancing. I served a Mackerel ‘Oshi’ sushi for the starter, specially cured at home; but they were gone faster than I was able to take photos. I also combined a special malt sauce with red fish for the main course, an ingredient that not everyone may be immediately familiar with. Red fish a.k.a. Sockeye Salmon is a great MSC certified fish, that goes well with a malt taste to give it some kick.
I hope you enjoy the photos. I will post soon about my supper club last Sunday; which was Japanese-Peruvian in partnership with my two good friends Fabricio and Antonia.
