Scottish Chef of the Year, Adam Handling, is visiting Brighton’s The Set Restaurant for two nights only in August.Adam Handling_Book The Set Restaurant on Regency Square, which opened its doors only four months ago, will be welcoming Adam for two exclusive nights, Sunday 2 August and Sunday 16 August 2015. The pop-up evenings will be offering an exclusive tasting menu created by the innovative chef, who has been inspired by Asian cuisine. The dishes on offer range from ingredients sourced from around the world, including crab doughnuts, ashed beef with onion jam, celeriac with apple and Australian truffle and a yuzu, meringue, white chocolate with milk ice cream. Yuzu is a citrus fruit from east Asia, with a very sour taste and strong fragrance. Previously a contestant on MasterChef, in 2013, and winner of British Culinary Federation Chef of the Year 2014, Adam has seen his career in gastronomy flourish since. Adam has had a whirlwind of a year, from being appointed head chef at Adam Handling at Caxton at St Ermins Hotel in Westminster, to winning Scottish Chef of the year 2015, all whilst writing and releasing a book and creating his own chocolates. The Set“I love Brighton. It’s one of my favourite places in the UK. When I’m not cooking at my London restaurant, I escape to this vibrant town. People really know food here and I can’t wait to finally share my cooking with them.” Adam said. Dan Kenny, the co-founder of The Set Restaurant is thrilled for Adam’s arrival, “Having Adam here doing a pop-up at The Set Restaurant is very exciting for us. I’ve admired Adam’s cooking for some time now and it’s safe to say his cooking has moved to a whole new level over the past year or so. He’s a highly acclaimed chef in London and I can’t wait for the people of Brighton to sample his incredible food.”
