The five-day Nordic culinary pop-up event fuses contemporary techniques with classic cooking

After a successful start to the new year with chefs from Mejekawi by Ku De Ta Bali last month, Sai Ying Pung’s Test Kitchen is returning with a touch of Nordic flavour this April with chef Jouni Toivanen. Hailing from Finland, where he is at the helm of the esteemed Luomo in Helsinki, Toivanen is set to headline his five-day pop-up showcase in Hong Kong this April

From April 4 to 8, the Finland-native is heading to Hong Kong to showcase his unique cuisine, where classic cooking traditions and flavours fuse with his contemporary techniques. Toivanen builds his cuisine largely around wild ingredients sourced and foraged from nature, prepared in simple means that accentuate the pure, natural flavours. The 42-year-old Finnish chef is set to present his eight-course Nordic-inspired menu at Test Kitchen.
