Superior Cuisine Pop-up Restaurant – A True Test of Mettle

It’s a serendipitous mix of incident-free mise en place and a little luck that makes for a perfect service. In a professional kitchen, ‘incident-free’ is a direct product of experience and seamless organisation. For our Superior Cuisine students running their first ever pop-up restaurant this month, they came face to face with how crucial those elements are in planning a perfect mise en.

Students of our Cuisine programme are required to apply their skills in a unique dining event to graduate. It puts these future-chefs right at the helm, handling all aspects of the pop-up restaurant from recipe design and ingredient costing to prep and service.

Not only do our students get a chance to finally put their skills to the test through this pop-up restaurant, but it reaffirms the reason why they began their culinary journey in the first place, just a few months ago. Pulling off a successful service and seeing guests delighted by the food you put out is the ultimate thrill for a chef-in-training.

Here’s to many more of these successful moments – bravo!
