For three nights, PipsDish in Islington is hosting three of London’s hottest rising pop-up restaurateurs.
LONDON — MAY 13, 2013 — We Are Pop Up announces The PipsDish Pop-Up Challenge. Over three evenings in May, three of London’s hottest new chefs showcase their talents at a Citroëngarage in Islington.
PipsDish is run by culinary dream team Philip ‘Pip’ Dundas and Mary Doherty. They originally opened PipsDish in 2011 as a temporary restaurant that was hidden in plain sight. In March 2013, Dundas announced that Pips Dish would finally be leaving the Citroën garage. But first, he wanted to give a few of London’s leading underground chefs the chance to shine.
In partnership with We Are Pop Up, PipsDish took open applications from a wide variety of chefs. Today, we are pleased to announce the three winners of the PipsDish Pop-Up Challenge:
In the spirit of their grandparents, Nonna Bianca and Nonno Giuseppe, AMooseBush is a foursome of family members who are on a singular mission to champion regional Italian dishes that have been handed down through the family.
Inspired by the cuisine and culture of Buenos Aries, Lima, Mexico City, and Santiago, Pisco Fuego is a dining experience that brings authentic Latin American zing, zest, and charcoal-grilled goodness to the streets of London.
Cult Event’s chef Ian Ballantyne said: “We’ve created an immersive experience that mixes classic asado barbecue cookery with modern street art and live music, all served in a beautifully set-designed venue.”
Chef Zoe Adjonyoh creates “Haute Ghanaian” culinary events that merge the Ghanaian roots with a contemporary dining experience. Born from a pop-up Ghanaian restaurant during the Hackney Wicked Arts Festival in 2011, Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen has become a favourite of London foodies.
Zoe recently collaborated with Diesel in London, hosting a temporary kitchen at Soho’s Diesel Village pop-up. Her underground success is also taking her to continental Europe, where she recently popped-up in Berlin. Ghanalicious.
