Hong Kong’s Test Kitchen is hosting Brit Ben Waugh from the UK’s Savoy Grill next month.
Test Kitchen is an experimental space in Sai Ying Pun founded by foodie Vincent Mui. He invites up-and-coming chefs from all over the world to helm the Test Kitchen space for a limited period of time.
“Our goal is to discover talented chefs and… give them a stage to share their passion with diners,” he says.
Waugh joined the Gordon Ramsay Group in 2010 as junior sous chef at the Savoy Grill, London. He then became head chef at maze Grill Park Walk, before returning to Savoy Grill in 2017 as executive head chef.
He will be leading Test Kitchen pop-up as part of the Gordon Ramsay Group initiative, ‘Where is my chef?’ that sends their chefs around the world to explore international food trends.
His seven-course prototype menu for Test Kitchen includes foie gras and pigeon terrine, shellfish tortellini, Beef Wellington, a citrus delice and assorted British cheeses.
$1,080 (seven-course tasting menu), $480 (wine pairing), Nov 7-11, Shop 3, 158A Connaught Road West, Sai Ying Pun. testkitchen.com.hk
