MasterChef winner Tim Anderson will be hosting an evening of Japanese flavours at The Balcony in Selfridges in Birmingham next month.
He will be serving traditional Japanese dishes with a modern twist, drawing on his history of worldwide culinary tourism and keen interest in food science and modernist cuisine.
Dishes will include Kumamato ramen – thin noodles in nose-to-tail pork broth with garlic chips, burnt garlic oil, pork belly, tea-pickled egg, and pickled mustard greens – and banana miso ice cream with black sugar syrup, kinako and castella.
Tim Anderson won BBC 1’s MasterChef in 2011 and is now a freelance chef, food writer, and consultant based in London.
The Taste Japan event will take place at The Balcony on Wednesday March 2 from 7pm, and guests will be served a selection of small plates, a ramen, a dessert and matching drinks.
Alice Weryk, general manager at Searcys at The Balcony, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Tim for what we’re sure will be an outstanding event.
“As the youngest ever winner, Tim is well known for his excellent performance on MasterChef, and we can’t wait to see what he cooks up on the night.
“For fans of Japanese cuisine, the evening promises to be an unforgettable experience. We have limited tickets available, so don’t miss out!”
Tim Anderson said: “I’m excited to be hosting this event at Selfridges in Birmingham – I love ramen and I want everyone to taste how good it can be, plus show off some of my favourite dishes from the book.”
