Japanese pop-up restaurant

On 28 August, a group of Bachelor of Arts in Culinary Arts students prepared and hosted a Japanese themed pop-up restaurant at the Four Seasons restaurant.

The purpose of the pop-up restaurant is to give students control of their own restaurant – from the creation and delivery of an authentic food and drinks menu, to the setup of the venue and service on the day.

The students were split into two groups – with one group responsible for all front-of-house duties and the other taking control of the back-of-house.

The menu, a six-course degustation, transported diners to Tokyo in style as specialties such as Zucchini sushi rolls, seared scallops and karaage chicken were served. Drinks included a range of inventive cocktails and a sake palate cleanser.
