Dalston restaurant Merci Marie is hosting an international pop-up inspired by the Jules Verne’s cult novel Around the World in 80 days.
The event, held at Fitzroy House, Abbot Street, this evening will include delicacies from across the globe with a French twist.
Head-chef Marie Gonford says: “The idea was to collaborate with the people I am working with and create different types of food from 8 different countries. Around the world in 80 days is like travelling to different countries with different influences – Japan is one of our favourites. Tonight you will be able to taste many different countries in one night!”
Dishes on tonight’s menu includes Chicken Karaage with tsukemono sauce from Japan, Moroccan slow cooked beef ribs in spices and preserved lemon served with an aubergine salad, Thai Sea bass curry with a green spicy mango salad and a stew of Barrigoule artichokes and baby garden vegetable, inspired by French home cooking.
Deserts will vary from an American-style chocolate peanut butter fudge sundaes to Italian basil panna cotta with pistachio biscuit.
Around The World in 80 Days will take place at Fitzroy House, Dalston, at 7pm on Saturday March 15. Tickets: £35 for a welcome cocktail, three courses and corkage. BYOB. More info here.
