Former Noma Chef to Open Mount Everest Pop-Up
One Star House Party and James Sharman, the 25-year-old former chef at Noma, have teamed up to offer the dinner of a lifetime at the base camp of Mount Everest in December.
Reservations are now being taking for the 14-day trip that will start in Kathmandu in Nepal on Dec. 10 and return on Dec. 23, Fine Dining Lovers reported. The deadline for reservations is Nov. 29.
The trip costs $1,050 per person and does not include flights to and from Nepal, according to One Star House Party’s website. Food and drinks are included on the trip by professionals from London’s Soho House and the Ledbury.
This trip is part of a larger-scale plan to open 20 pop-up restaurants, in 20 countries, in 20 months.
Sharman and his team have and will continue to travel the globe, spending three weeks researching and building a pop-up restaurant, and serving food the final week, The New York Times reported.
“I love building a menu from an experience,” Sharman told The Times. “A chef can research an ingredient at home on the internet then carefully source it once he’s arrived, but it’s so much more palatable to immerse yourself in a culture and build out a dish from an experience you’ve had.”
