Pioneer of Kappo Cuisine in Brazil, Chef Tsuyoshi Murakami  comes to The Loft Project on 8th and 9th April

Japanese-Brazilian chef and owner of São Paulo’s top Japanese Restaurant – Kinoshita, Chef Tsuyoshi Murakami is in London from 7th to 10th April showcasing his award winning cuisine. Murakami is the pioneer of the Kappo Cuisine in Brazil, a style of high Japanese gastronomy that aims to stimulate diverse sensations through the combination of rare and exotic aromas, textures and ingredients. Tsuyoshi Murakami will be hosting two dinners at Nuno Mendes’ Loft Project on 8th and 9th April (reservations via www.theloftproject.co.uk ). The Loft Project works as a temporary restaurant where chefs from top kitchens around the world are invited to host dinners for guests around one communal table. The Loft Project is located in Unit 2A Quebec Wharf, 315 Kingsland Road, London E8 4DJ.

Chef Murakami has designed a special menu that showcases his passion for Japanese ingredients, illustrating his approach towards Kappo Cuisine but also celebrating his Brazilian-Japanese heritage. At The Loft Project, he will be serving his creations under the Kappo Cuisine ethos like “Oyster Shot” Oyster, salmon roe, Uni and quail egg yolk served in Ponzu sauce; “Sea Scallop Ceviche” Fresh sea scallops marinated in Leche de Tigre and “Chocomoti Coffee Ice Mochi” with a Valrhona Jivara chocolate filling served with white coffee ice cream.

Brazil is home to the largest Japanese population outside of Japan, with around 1.5 million descendants, mostly located in the cultural hub city of São Paulo, so it is not a surprise that this city presents excellent Japanese food at every corner. Kinoshita restaurant was founded in 2008 by Murakami and restaurateur Marcelo Fernandes (Clos de Tapas, Mercearia do Francês and former business partner at D.O.M., ranking on 18th position at World’s 50 Best Restaurants) and since then has won numerous accolades in Brazil. Borrowing the words of Charles Campion on a special feature about Sao Paulo’s restaurants, “if you want a benchmark, think Nobu, and were this restaurant in Europe it would certainly be Michelin starred.” (The Guardian in 2009)
